For my girly card I chose to work with this sassy design, Claudia by Beary Dust Stamps.

For my something ‘New’ I have covered an old packaging tube from a Liz Earle cleanser. This is something new for me as I have actually used something that I have saved from the bin instead of it gathering dust. I have also cracked open some new papers from the First Edition pad called Dreamweaver. It’s all pretty flowers and butterflies in shades of purples, totally me J

I kept the colouring on the image very simple using shades of purples and flesh tones with green eyes. I have cut around the image with tiny scissors and ran it through my Xyron sticker machine.

The papers have been stuck onto the tube using extra sticky red line double sided tape. There was quite a big gap between the top and bottom sections so I added the pom pom trim to help disguise this and add some decoration.

On the lid I have added a self adhesive flower ribbon around the edge and some brig paper flowers with a Dovecraft brad
