Honey, Honey....

Hello peps, Happy Easter to you all.  Hope you haven't over indulged on the chocolate eggs..  
So sorry I'm a little late with my inspiration today, but better late than never. 
I'm going through a purple faze at the minute, can't seem to get enough.. lol 
I decided to try my hand at the shabby chic style and came up with this card. Unfortunately the photograph's haven't come out every good as the weather today is rather dull..  

I will list and link all Cheery Lynn Dies used at the end of the post so all you have to do is 

The border on the side is a favourite of mine and seem to reach for it all the time, its called the Frills and Hearts banner and is simply divine.  I used a crimp machine to create that cardboard effect and then applied white paint. 
The smaller border on the other side of the card is the part of the frills and hearts border that you would normally throw away but I think its to pretty so in actual fact you get two borders for the price of one.  You will find that with Cheery Lynn Dies you can sometimes use the positive and negative cuts..     

Here is a close up of the Cutie Fringe flower and the metal butterfly that I heat embossed with Shabby Chic Fantage embossing powders.. 
Copic Colours 
V28, 22, 20
BV95, 93, 91
W7, 5, 3, 2, 1, 0
V99, 95, 93, 91

I absolutely adore these new daisy strip flowers and the Rose leaf strip is also one of my favourites.. I have also used the Tiny things with wings die for the cute little bumble bee, see if you can spot it between the flowers.  I have again embossed using Fantage embossing powers. On the corners I embossed one of the corner dies and believe me when I tell you they look like metal.. 

This gorgeous paper is a new one for me, its from Maja Designs and is called Vintage Spring Basic and wow is it fabulous!! 
Don't forget to head over to the Challenge blog and join in this week's challenge but you better be quick as it ends later today.  If you missed it don't worry a new challenge theme starts tomorrow and the theme will be...
