Busy Baking

Hi Everyone,

Today's card is my DT card for LLC and my February GDT card for Lili of the Valley, who today are having a themed Thursday, which is food and drink so my little Apron card has joined them.  My busy baking bear is making cookies and then I think she'll be making some delicious cupcakes, lol.  These stamps are just so darn cute and I do love cuteness :)

I decided to make an Apron Card for this little Busy Baking Bear so I can display her with pride and also a little room for my beloved embellishments.  The papers are by PionDesign A Day in May White Blossom and I made the pocket out of  PionDesign Flower Frames 12x12 Rosa.     .

Here's a close up of this little lady coloured with distress markers.  The butterflies were cut from the Studio of Memories diecut sheet, sooooooooooo love this sheet.

I have used a bark heart at the bottom left and decorated with Roses, Chrysanthemum, vintage pearl pins and a minature rolling pin from the Ribbon Girl.

The flower arrangement on the right consists of flower spray, 20mm and 10mm roses and chrysanthemums, all with a dashing of gesso.  I have also added one of those cute sentiment tags from LOTV.

I stamped the Lili of the Valley Recipe Sentiment onto a tag and adhered some seam binding and a little mixer charm, soooo cute.

The Apron Strings and neckline were created from vintage seam binding.  I have also added some pearl organza rose trim to the top and bottom of the Apron.

I have added a pen nib to the centre of the butterfly at the top and of course a dashing of gesso.

I have added some of my favourite pearl trim to the top of the pocket.
