As soon as I got it home I had to create something with it and knew the perfect design on the Ooh La La shoes in bloom CD that would work with it.
Other than the Ooh La La topper and matching papers, the sentiment and the faux button were also from the same CD. The topper is from the folder 'Dance Petticoat. I added the floral embellishments, feathers and string of pearls, and finished the front of the card off by adding the little net butterfly. The Pearls were also from the haberdashers. The flowers are from Wild Orchid and the feathers and butterfly have been in my stash box for a couple of years.
I kept the girly theme by using pink card stock as a background that had been mounted on silver mirror card and all the papers and the toper were also matted on the silver mirror card to bring the design together. I created the panel and wrapped the edge with the ruffled polka dot ribbon and net before adding it to 8x8 card blank.
Inside the card I used the DL insert from the CD which I shrank down to 6x6 and then mounted on silver mirror card to give a glamorous feel to the inside.
The right hand side had a die cut butterfly added and I trimmed the opposite corners with white pearlised card candi.
On the left hand side I made a pocket from another topper from the CD and added a bookmark again from the CD that had been threaded with black and white polka dot ribbon which is reversible - another of my haberdashery bargain buys.
I have loads of other ribbons to play with and I think I can safely say they will be appearing on my cards in abundance over the next few weeks.
I am really pleased with the design and I will be sending it to a very special friend for her birthday. I know she'll love it and she will make good use of the bookmark as she is an avid reader.
