Pretty Place Settings

My Aunt is visiting from France and has asked me to design her some place settings for her upcoming 50th Birthday celebration. Here is what I came up with! You can see the original design for the place setting on pg42 of the main catalogue.

Above, this was a Real Red base and I used my Broadsheet Alphabet to do an initial in Pumpkin Pie ink. The butterflies were done on my Big Shot - this die is AMAZING! It cuts AND embosses the butterflies at the same time!!

Here I used an Old Olive base with a paper daisy, ruffled satin Whisper White ribbon and some chunky Baja Breeze glass glitter.

The Rich Razzleberry base had Melon Mambo flowers added and I used the sweet punch, Boho Blossoms, to make the little surrounding flowers; each has a Basic Rhinestone in the centre. The base stamp used was Bella Toile.

Lastly there is this one. The Boho Blossoms punch was used again, but also the five petal flower punch in Marina Mist. This time I used pearls in the centre.

Hope she likes them! Will find out tonight as we're hosting a BBQ and she is coming along.
