ABC E for Embellish

Our challenge this time at ABC is E for Embellish. We would like to see three of more different embellishments on your creation, for example Buttons, brads, flowers, dies, ribbon, lace, etc. We are sponsored by Kenny K with three digis for the winner and also by Bunny Zoe with a £10 gift certificate.

I used my brand new paper pad from Bo Bonny called Zip-A-Dee-Doodle for my card. I got it for a bargain price in a sale! ABC E Embellish1

I cut two different patterned sheets diagonally in half and then spliced them together on my scalloped card blank. From a third sheet I cut a square and matted it on top. A fourth sheet went into making the diecut mat behind my Sarah Kay ‘Precious Moments’ image, which I coloured with copics. The lovely little flowers are from my stash as are the feathers, leaf pins and the butterfly I got on a bookmark. I bought a few on ebay for silly money (pennies) and took all the gorgeous adornments off to use in my crafting.
