Pretty papers

Hello lovely people,

Have you seen the super new papers from LOTV?!
They are available to buy now along with some fab new sentiment sets, and as part of the Design Collective I was lucky enough to get a few samples so couldn't resist having a play :-)

I also wanted to try using an art pad image for the first time and was delighted to find a floral image that co-ordinated absolutely perfectly with some of the new papers!
Using an art pad image certainly speeded up my card making and I just added some teeny dots of liquid pearls to the hydrangeas.

Card recipe;
Twine: Natural button twine - The Ribbon Girl - currently unavailable
Tag: Sentiment tags - LOTV & Family sentiment tags - LOTV
Dies: Tiny butterflies - Impression Obsession, Filigree corner - La la land

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,
