Fancy and Frilly

Oh this is so NOT my style but it's this week's challenge at Delightful Challenges and I know it's always good to try to design outside one's comfort zone LOL!
So, here's my fancy and frilly offering -
 
 
I used the PRE-COLORED Mrs Luvvy Owl from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.  I think it's great that you can use these adorable images even if you don't want to color.  All of  Wendy's digis can be purchased pre-colored or in black and white.

 
I added some frills using Crinkle ribbon from My Craft Spot, a half doily that I spritzed with Tattered Angels and gathered a bit, an adhesive pearl and a stick pin from my stash.

 
I also added pearls around the card and on the sentiment
 (from K Andrew Designs Sew Much Fun set)

 
The card base was cut with Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Squares.  I folded the base and positioned the die slightly off the folded cardstock.  Then I cut another scalloped square and adhered it to the front of the base.  The patterned paper was cut with Spellbinders Lacy Squares.  I've been trying to use my Spellbinders more after seeing the amazing cards created by Lisa of A Mermaid's Crafts. She's been so willing to share her techniques and answer all of my questions.
Oh, I also added a Recollections flower and some leaves using the MS branch punch.
 
If fancy and frilly is your style or, like me, you want to stretch your creativity, come join in our challenge by linking your card to Delightful Challenges.

You've done it well, Larelyn! I'm still trying to reach a happy balance between CAS and Fancy/Frilly. It actually takes me a few cards to get back to doing whichever one I've not done for a while. :-D
