Botanica Beauty

New paper alert!  I snapped these up when Craftwork Cards had one of their flash sales on a few selected paper packs; I'd been eyeing up this stunning Botanica stack up for a while, and at 40% off with free p+p it would have been rude not to!
 The digi stamp is from Saturated Canary, I coloured her with Pro and Flexmarkers, she was a joy to colour, especially her hair.  I added a touch of colour to the edge of the topper with some Milled Lavender Distress Ink, and created a border with lilac Liquid pearls.
The flowers at the bottom of the card and all the little birds (can you spot all five!) were all fussy cut from the paper pack, the only other embellishments I needed were a couple of stick pins, some clear gems and a Craftwork Cards sentiment which reads "Absolutely Fabulous".
