Fairytale Dreams

Happy Tuesday!
I hope you have had a fabulous day!  It felt so good for me to get back into my craft room with inspiration and determination!  The motivation has been lacking quite a bit lately and I've felt like what I've been making has been less than par...and it hasn't made me happy.  So it felt great to work up a card that I love and to be totally proud of it!
Isn't she a sweetie!?  I recently received this Snow White image from Krista at Saturated Canary as a prize and I just love her!  I again fussed with my colored pencils to get the coloring right, and while it's not perfect, I'm still happy with it :)
I broke down this weekend and bought some crochet lace ribbon...finally!  I'm so glad I did!  It adds so much elegance to this card and sort of softens it up.  Perfect addition!

Most of my day was spent learning how to make those roses though.  Since my cricut died, I haven't really been able to find a quick way to make roses and that has really bummed me out since I love making my own flowers.  I had bought a few flower punches so I could make cute little buds, but I wanted to make some larger roses as well.  So I found a 5 petal image on the internet and turned it into a die cut file for my Cameo.  Then I started with the punches for the centers and made each layer of the cut file slightly bigger in Silhouette Studio.  It took me a few tries to get the staggering correct, but once I worked it out, the results were perfect!

I took some of my Copic sketch markers-R81, R85, R27 and colored in the layers of the roses to give them a two-tone affect.  I just love doing that!  Probably one of my favorite ways to use the few copics that I have.
Then I cut out a leaf flourish to tuck behind the flowers and arranged everything together!
The last element I added was the handmade punched heart button attached to the sentiment.  Along with flowers, I love making my own buttons :)  I can make them in almost any shape and size that I want to!

Love love love this card!  I'm so happy with how it turned out and I hope that inspiration streak will continue as today was really fun :)
