Little Darlings and a Double Zig Zag Card

Hello and Happy Friday  - it is my turn to post again this month as Guest DT over on the Little Darlings DT Inspiration Blog, I have been so excited to get a chance to play with these stamps, they are all so cute and pretty. I love that you can do both! They have the Cutie Pies for your "cute" fix, and the Little Darlings are all so gorgeous. And I am sure by now you have heard that really soon their will be those very popular Saturated Canary images in rubber! Can't hardly wait for those personally :0)

But on to todays card ok? My card looks really complicated, but it really is pretty easy just lots of layers. I first saw this Double Zig Zag card and tutorial on Mariannes Papirverden under her tutorials. I love the look of vintage or shabby chic cards, and these gorgeous Little Darlings images are perfect for all the pretty layers and lacy look. 

 For my card I used three images. The band that is the closure has the Little Darlings background Bird Bath, cut into an oval. Then inside we find from the Spring 2012 release "Isn't She Lovely" - she is one of my favorites  - I colored with my Copics and a little shading wiht pencils. Then my sentiment inside is from the newest Cutie Pie release, "In the Garden - Sentiments". Fabulous sentiments for many types of cards.

My pattern papers are from K&Company Designer Paper collection. Punch used is Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace corner/border set. Lots of Mulberry Roses with Martha's Frond and Branch punches. Then of course my sewing machine. I don't know if I could feel like a card is done until I have sewed it together. LOL  

Isn't it great how this card stands up and displays? I see LOTS of possibilities for things here... LOL, 

Here is a close up of the sentiment and gorgeous image - 

Hope you enjoyed my little project - I really enjoyed making this one. Took some time I won't lie, but that makes it special :0) 

Make sure to visit the Little Darlings DT Inspirations Blog and see all the great ideas there, and then pop on over to the Little Darlings Store I know you probably already have lots of Little Darlings images, but bookmark the site and keep checking in cuz from what I hear their is gonna be lots of wonderful new things real soon! 

Have a great Friday and I'll see you tomorrow for a few Animal Crackers!
HUGS and
