DCM - Tempting Template

This friday's challenge at DCM is to use this template to base your card on.

Here's what I came up with. As you can see, I'm really into these images from Pink Petticoat and I love the phrases that go with them too. I came up with the magnifying glass idea for the circles but I'm not sure if you can tell that they're supposed to be magnifying parts of the picture????Still I'm really please with the over all result.
I used mini brads for the currant detail - I love these brads.
Again, I couldn't resist using my glossy accents, I think they work really well on the hair.

Fabby card Louly - love the use of the brads and the colouring is gorgeous.

Janette said...

hi,

fantastic cards I really love them - just the sort of card I would choose from a shop myself (if only cardshops sold cards as nice). Be careful of glossy accents it's addictive I've found I can't seem to make a card these days without using it. By the way bought crafts beautiful, congratulations you really are talented.
