Evie Fabulous

Soooo, this is an older make - I actually made this for my niece Evie's birthday back in November.

It was a last minute make as I was going through my rubbish at making cards stage due to lack of inspiration and (probably) too much sewing to do - she got an Elsa dress for her birthday from me.

I used an LOTV art pad image, as I thought this one looked like Evie, which I layered onto purple card.  I also used an LOTV 'fabulous' sentiment, which I had stamped a while ago in dusty concord distress ink.  I also layered this onto purple card.  I backed the two panels with some gauze (which I thought went well with the spider-web in the image) and then some pink spotty paper.  I wrapped a bit of pink baker's twine around the top left-hand and bottom right-hand corners of the card.  I added various colours and shapes of buttons on each corner of the card and two corners of the image panel.  

I die-cut Evie's name from some card and attached this above the image panel.  I used a flat-backed pearl as the dot on the eye.  I also used flat-backed pearls on the corners of the fabulous panel.  I also made a little bow from some pink ribbon and added this at the end of the name.

To finish the card, I made a little bouquet from some pink roses from my stash, a swirly thing from The Ribbon Girl, some leaf pins and pearl pins, also from The Ribbon Girl, all tied with a ribbon.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
