Mixed Media Cards

Hello everyone!!!
Today I am sharing a couple of mixed media cards with you.
For the first one I chose paper from the new You and Me Prima Collection which I layered onto the card base.  The upper one on the right, I adhered with pop dots.
I selected matching flowers which I tucked under each other, a small white resin frame with wood leaves at the bottom of the frame which I painted white.  Then I tucked in a piece of a crocheted  doilie under the flowers on the left.  When I'm making these cards I usually select a lot of items then place my main item (which is the large white flower at the top) and add the other items.

The second card below I used Graphic 45 Secret Garden paper.  The girl that you see is from one of the papers that I fussy cut then adhered with pop dots.  Starting with my main large turquoise flower, I added the other items.  Under the main flower is a piece of greenery ( it matches the greenery in the paper) which I cut from a vine that I purchased at a craft store.  I added more of this under the bird house.  I also added some cheese cloth to give some softness, a portion of a paper doilie and some pearl beads.  A little bit of bling  and it was completed.  The bird house accented the white picket fence in the paper.

I hope you enjoy and until next time (soon to come - mixed media Christmas cards)
this is Donna wishing you a very happy and safe week.
Pumpkins in the cornfields, gold among the brown.
Leaves of rust and scarlet, trembling slowly down.
Birds that travel southward, it's a lovely time to play
Nothing is as pleasant, as an autumn day!
