Taking it easy with peachy coloured card

Good afternoon blogger friends!

Thank you ever so much for all your comments yesterday! Very much appreciated and every single one are read. I hope your having a lovely day so far.

I'm taking it easy today, few stresses at home so I've been colouring digi stamps and now I'm working on another project which always takes days not hours lol. I always start it off then put it down and a few hours later will start on it again and so on until I finish it lol. This is why for the time being I am doing my view of quick cards.

This card is gorgeous as I love the image if this rather unique boy fairy character and also love the peachy colours on the card.

I started of by using pearly white A4 card and scoring in half to make an A5 portrait card. I have many papers and card in my stash , some patterned , expensive , plain and textured but for the life of me I can't remember where I purchased them from so I do apologise for that. I do know that the paper I've used today have been in my stash for quite some time lol.

I used peachy coloured textured card for the top, some patterned peach paper on the right and left the left hand side white. I then used this gorgeous expensive textured, embossed, and glittered patterned paper and made it into a small tag by sticking it onto some card to make it sturdy . Drew a tag shape and cut around it, pierced a hole at the top and used a brad to attach it to the card. I then used a die cut sentiment on the bottom of the tag.

I made up the fairy decoupage , matted it onto a silver mirrored card which I die cut with my spellbinders die. On either side of the topper I stuck some beautiful pink roses and used pearly drops in the middle of each rose. I finished of the card with gold peel offs, sentiment, glitter, pearl drops and a bow for the tag.
