Playing with flowers, tulle and lace

So I'm sharing a little something from my play time last night, I had to wait for all the glue to dry before I could take the pictures tonight and add the last bits on.  These goodies are mainly from The Ribbon Girl.  I'll give you the links in a bit.

I love these roses and I've never had them in green before.  With those and the white leaves I started having a rummage around my design papers for teal papers.  Overjoyed I found some.

I've taken a few photos at different angles so you can see the 3-d effect of the flowers / card/

Showing a close up of the flower section also with resin flowers, ric-rac and frilled tule

Here you can see the sentiment I cut out of the design papers which says "The flower of friendship grows."  The design papers have all been distressed with a Tonic Solutions tool.  They're from 13 Arts and Studio Light.  I've also used some white card which has been die cut into leave with a Fantasy Die.  The main square shaped fancy die is a Spellbinders one.

You can also see a bee charm I won as part of a prize from The Trinket Parlour.

On the left underneath the die you can also see some lace I've used from The Ribbon Girl.

I've also used some green shimmery gel dots and a few cream pearls to finish off.

Thanks for popping by for a look today
