Card and Hatpin ...

Hi Everybody,

Todays card is another pretty in pink creation but this one has the Hatpin pushed into the corsage.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and have the added glitter  from Glitter Magic.

The diamante teardrops are from Want2Scrap and they blend with the diamnate in the hatpin.

The hatpins and end protectors are from the Sparkles Group  ... they are in gold and silver, different sizes and if you add the code CG05 you will get a discount at the checkout.

I have left the protector on the pin for the recipient to remove and wear.

This is the finished card and I have used the butterflies from the Les Papillion set.

The ribbon is from my "Stash"

The pink lace under the ribbon is from a bouquet of flowers that I got for my birthday  ... frugal crafter wastes nothing !!

The verse is from a set by Crafters Companion and there are lots of lovely sentiments in the sets.

The papers I have used are free with the March magazine from Tattered Lace 


More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  6. Such a pretty card and the hatpin really makes it so special. I hoard all the bits and pieces of ribbon and lace that I find, even the narrow ribbon on the shoulders of the clothes I buy.

  21. Very pretty Christina, I love the hat pin, reminds me of the times I really used the hat pins for the purpose of keeping my hat from blowing off, I still have them and a couple of my Grandmothers. I still have lots of hats, however I don't wear them anymore, I'd like to but someone would think I was from otter space.

  30. Good evening Christina,
    I really like today's card that you have made. I thought i recognized the floral paper from the Tattered Lace magazine. The flowers with the stick pin at the side of the main focal point are lovely and just finish off the card lovely.
    Thank you
    Love and crafty hugs
