Saturated Canary Lovely card

Hi everyone, I have created a card with Saturated Canary's "Lovely" image, isn't she gorgeous? I cropped her as she's full length and I wasn't feeling in a particularly confident mood when I printed her lol. Her dress is absolutely beautiful but I really struggle with "creases" so I decided to colour just her top half for my first time colouring her. 

The gorgeous shabby chic pink peg is from Pin and Tack, what a lovely prize it was, the pegs came in a lovely little basket too. They sell them HERE. The metal cornices, filmstrip and shabby heart came from Live and Love Crafts and the pearl flourish is from Flourish with a Bling and you can buy it HERE.

Flourish with a Bling are a retail store as well as wholesale so you can buy direct from us now! We have some fantastic themed packs (eg. Bling, vintage, fairy garden, boys, princess etc) at amazing prices, you can check them all out by clicking here. If you mention my blog (Lucy) when ordering we will send you a bonus Jasmine laser flourish!
