Snow White's Poisonous Apple


Poisonous Apple anyone? I am super happy with how this card turned out! Besides the fact that Tilda with Apple is beyond gorgeous (thanks Kylie for the image - my stamp just arrived from Bizzy Bec's this morning!), I actually cut this baby free-handed!

I also made the ribbon flowers myself, just a simple running stitch pulled tight with bead/s in the centres, (all the leaves are a dark green - not quite black lilke they appear!) I added another cute butterfly charm, you may see a heap of these as I bought in bulk! Both the sentiments are DIY Rub-ons, as I don't have this kit, I had to print my own sentiment, I think my 'Once Upon a Time' looks way better! ha ha! I know this isn't exactly coloured like Snow White, but I love these earthy papers and wanted to match them, and I love this lace!! Cheryl sent it to me in a recent candy win, along with a brown and a pink the same, I am in love with them!! And will certainly by buying more! Thanks again Cheryl

I'm going to defiantly be back with another card for you all... my 2 Lil Lolita's from Tickled Pink stamps have just arrived in the mail too! Woo Hoo!! I think I'm going to ink up sweet Willow 1st?
