Life is a Wonderful Fairytale Card

Hey there Peeps! It's Ginny here and I'm very excited that it's Thursday. My dear friend Barbara and I take over the GSL blog and show off our creations using the Fabulous Gypsy Soul chippies. I created a card with medieval flair with Enchanted Forest from Graphic 45.

 There's lots of layers of patterned papers here with spacers for a lot of dimension.
Using a distressing tool on the edges of the paper adds so much texture.
The focal image is framed with Flourished Frame Evie. A layer of crackle paint and some distress stain finishes it off to look like old metal.
Adding painted Feathery Flourishes to the flowers helps anchor the arrangement and extend it to the corners of the card.
More flourishes are a great place to add a sentiment banner.
With so much patterns going on I needed only a simple graphic striped ribbon and coordinating pearly accents.

Okay that's so much for visiting today. Make sure you check out Barbara's post too..her projects are always so fabby! Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be productive : )G
