With a Flourish and a Swirl for the Emerald Faerie Garden DT

Hi to all of you in the land of blog
Today is the next challenge for the

The theme this time around is

flourishes and Swirls

Here is what I created for my Design Team inspirational piece
I made a heart shaped Wedding Anniversary easel card with a matching box

The base card is white with the black complimenting colour and some of those gorgeous Papermania Capsule Collection mono papers. The sentiments on the front and the easel return are by My Sentiments Exactly and one is sat on a nellie die and the other a nestie die.  I have used some cheesecloth under the image to soften the card and if you look really closely I have use the MS heart punch to create a pretty doily effect around the large hearts of the easel. Marianne heart dies, nestie flourishes and Marianne swirls along with lots of Wild Orchid flowers all airbrushed to match.

Here is a close up of the sentiment on the return with those three gorgeous Marianne heart dies

Here is the left side of the card and the left side of the top of the box, where I have added some liquid pearls to the top heart and flowers and ribbon to the box.

This is the right hand side of the card with the floral array and those Marianne flourishes with swirls, you can also just see the little hearts all the way around the card edges.

Here is the lovely image coloured in copics with some clear glitter sakuro for the wings
The image is Willie and Mia and can be purchased here along with many other gorgeous images

Here is a final close up of the card
