Lovely in Lavender

Today I am posting a card I created for my daughter.  Her birthday was last Thursday but we are celebrating it tomorrow evening.  She asked me to take her out to dinner at a restaurant she has been wanting to go to for a long time.  It is called "The Melting Pot" which serves many types of Fondue,   I am looking forward to going out to celebrate her special day. 

I had a lot of fun creating this card and did use a lot of different die cuts.  To start I used the Marianne Design Corners (LR0200); two corners were taped down and die cut.  The beautiful doily in the center is the Marianne Design (LR0236). The flower was created using the Cheery Lynn "Build A Flower #2" dies.   There are a lot of the Marianne Design Decorative Leaves which are listed below.  Two Cheery Lynn butterflies were added.  The small lavender flowers are die cut using the Cheery Lynn "Embellishments #2" dies.  Small Kaiser Craft pearls were added to the center of the flowers.

My daughter usually likes to display her birthday cards, so I put this card on a heavy piece of card stock and attached the Tim Holtz "Small Easel".
