Precious Post

HAPPY FRIDAY!!  This week at Live and Love Crafts we were inspired by the word "PRECIOUS"!  That word could be used for inspiring so many different cards but I knew exactly which papers to head to.  Off I went to Pion's "Sweet Baby" collection, including the images and made not just 1 but 2 cards.  I'm sure it was just as easy as making one!!  I'm gonna try this more often!  LOL!  The papers have some nice tags, which I topped off with a shabby bow.
I also covered the bottom layer with some cheesecloth.  It seems like using that adds more of a vintage feeling to anything.  I even added some very pretty tulle and laces on each card.
The big flower is from my stash of Prima and all my Wild Orchid Craft flowers are from LLC.  Oh and same with those gorgeous rolled roses.  If ever I was challenged to build a card without flowers I'm not so sure I could do it.  LOL!!  Oh WAIT!  Yes I could!  A masculine card - hee hee - but it would never look this pretty.  ha ha ha!!
I added a strip of the Pion baby paper (a tape measure) to a spool, then some pop dots and distressed the edges for both of these cards.  These butterflies are new to the LLC store and I've discovered that you can bend them for a little dimension so I lifted the wings and popped some lace behind some buttons.

Well I hope you've enjoyed my cards for the day! Have a great weekend!  I know I will as I'm heading off to a crop with some friends.  YAY to crafty time!  I hope you get some too!
