So here's my very first DT work for Zva Creative. The box of goodies arrived on Wednesday and it was filled with gorgeous flowers, blings and brads! Of course, I couldn't wait to get started.
I used this lovely die cut paper from Webster's Pages' Lullaby Lane collection. As the photo was actually taken during Chinese New Year this year, with my DDs in their New Year finery, I decided to do up the layout like the frog buttons on a Mandarin collar, and these lovely crystal flourishes from Zva were the perfect design and size for this.
I decorated the area around the crystals with flowers, also from Zva, to which I had applied some stickles for added glitter.
The photo itself is mounted on 3-D pop-up dots for added dimension and I used my new Martha Stewart Crafts Monarch Butterfly Edge Punch to punch out the little butterflies lining the top and bottom of the photo.
The lovely crystal brads I used are also from Zva.
