Fiskars - Pots for Felicity

So my Granddaughter wanted some pots for her little bits ‘n’ pieces . She gave me the brief as only nine year olds do ~ had to be pretty with flowers and I need at least 2 . 
So bargain, she got 3 little wrap around pots . Each one has a beautiful flower made from the heart shaped punch , I used the flower punch for the middles adding a super sparkly gem. A few punched feather leafs and finished them off with some punched Butterflies ~ she loved them
I used my favourite Card ever Roaring Twenties from Crafters Companion

Crafty Ribbons DT ~ Tag

Good Morning Everyone
Am here today to share my DT project for Crafty Ribbons
This time round I have made a tag

I think it has turned out really pretty and I so love the colours
I cut out 2 tags , one slightly larger in mint green Pearl Cardstock and the other in plain white

To decorate I used 
Spring Song Stamp, Paper and Embellishment kit
From this I used the doily and the pearls
For the main part I used 
Spring Song A4 paper topper collection
Which I cut a few times so some could be layered
I made a little envelope for the sentiment 

The beautiful ribbon which was a perfect match for my tag is from Crafty Ribbons
and tied together with a little snip of White Satin Ribbon

I also used this wonderful lace I loved it against the Doily
Thank you so much for stopping by
