Inspired by Pinterest

Today, I have a card to share that I was inspired to make
after seeing this photo on Pinterest:

I love the beautiful pink blooms, which got me thinking about
the pretty shades of pink in the Chickaniddy Crafts Twirly Girly Collection.
So, I grabbed my PTI Mighty Oak coverplate, some Goldie Lox foil
and some Twirly Girly patterned paper and made this card:

I diecut the coverplate from white cardstock and removed all of the leaves and the trunk.
I adhered this to a folded piece of white cardstock that became my card base.
I diecut the Goldie Lox foil using the coverplate and inserted the trunk and some of the leaves 
into the empty spaces on my card.
I diecut the solid pink and berry leaves from the 12x12 Itty Bitty Ballerina patterned paper, and the patterned leaves from Piggy Tales, Birthday Girl and one sheet of the Twirly Girly 6x6 paper pad.

The Goldie Lox foil diecuts like a dream and looks fabulous on my card!

4For my banner, I diecut another piece of 12x12 Itty Bitty Ballerina patterned paper, using
PTI's Songbirds die and stamped on it twice using the sentiment from the Twirly Girly Clear Stamp set.
All I did was curve the sentiment slightly before stamping it.
I adhered it to my card, using regular adhesive, but placing a piece of foam adhesive near the trunk
to add a little dimension.

Thanks for looking!
