You probably have seen this card, during our monthly Blog Hop:

and as promised, I've done a step by step tutorial on it. So here we go:

For the back ground of my card I took a Prima packaging, (on the right there's the whole piece)and I cut it down to 5x6.2 At the top I added a piece of the filmstrip sticker.

I cut a piece of PP at 5.2x5 Distressed the edges.

And glued it to my back ground. I also scratched the edges of the filmstrip sticker with my nails.

I then cut a piece of chickenwire

and glued it down with a drop of hot glue and a green piece of the little roses that came in the kit.

I (hot) glued a strip of lace at the bottom. (This lace came from my stash)

And I cut down the scalloped strip, (you can find this on the sticker sheet also) and glued it in place

Then I wrapped, generously, some twine around and tied a bow. Time to work on my embellies.

These word strips are going to be my sentiment.

I stacked 2 of the flowers, that came in the kit, together

I choose this gorgeous sticker for the top of my card. I inked the edges

and pop dotted the back. Or in my case... I used the box my kit came in and added 2 layers.

Then glued it in place at the left top of my card.

I also pop dotted (1 layer of cardboard) the sentiment strips and glued them in place. Flower also.

This sticker is going to be dressed up a little.

I first inked the edges and glued it in place. I also cut tiny bits of lace that are tucked in under and around the flower.

Then I randomly placed some of those fantastic glass tiles, using hot glue.

I still found that the left top needed something more. It was too dull, so I choose these 3 elements

and glued them down on the sticker. First the paper strip, then lace and the rose on top. I also got that bottle of (gorgeous color) liquid pearls and placed some dots at the top and bottom of the sticker.

and there

and here

And for the last detail, I lightly added some Gesso to my flowers.

Simple and quick.... Hope you like it and give it a try.
