Fondant Fancy

Good evening to everyone from a chilly and wet GB.  We have had the wettest summer for 100 years, its official.

So I was delighted when this little lady tuned up in my Reading List the other day courtesy of the lovely Krista Smith of Saturated Canary.  Thank you so much Krista.

She is so beautiful and I have gone overboard with the glitter, glitz and bling.   

List of Materials used to make this delicious confection:

Wonderful free image from Krista to be found here

Image coloured using Promarker and Flexmarker Pens.  White Gel Pen.  Lots of glitter in pink and violet.  Pearls and diamanté bling.

Glitter pink paper, glitter pink acetate butterflies.  Design papers are gorgeous La Jardine.

Pink ribbon and wonderful feathers from my stash.  Bling swirl and Craftwork Cards greeting topper.

I have made this card as an Easel Card as I love the way that this displays the fabulous design papers used.

Image showing the base of the easel card with matching mini design toppers and another fabulous pink glitter acetate butterfly.

I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges: Use something bought in the last 2 months - My feathers

Another slightly blurry picture showing the glitter detail on the image.  She is so lovely and I had such fun creating this card.  Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post and looking at my card.  Sending warmest wishes to you all.  Keep warm and safe.
