Used Lili of the valley stamp and papermania papers. A die cut sentiment, some pretty pearls I got given from my friend for my birthday and a mixture of gorgeous ribbons, some very old and some very new.
Close up of image, coloured with my promarkers.
Lots of brads, gems and a little lace.
Stamped 'love' sentiment and again coloured using promarkers.
Used some more of the pretty papermania flowers and attached with a DCWV butterfly brad.
I used my lace trim border punch to add detail to the plain page.
I cut out some hearts using my x-cut dies. I used pigment chalks to edge and some satin ribbon attached with some pretty little brads.
More ribbon at the edge secured with brads and an acetate sentiment attached using even more bradlets.
Close up of die-cuts and faux stitching.
Tags and flowers and also I wove the satin ribbon in and out of the holes that I punched.
Again with the woven ribbon! (and how is it you think you have gotten rid of all those little squares from the back of your raised pads and then suddenly there they are again).
Close up of romance sentiment
at last the back page.
