Cards for Meg's Garden # 1

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog.  
A very warm welcome to my new followers too, so pleased to have you here ladies!!
My DT post was up on the Meg's Garden Blog a few days ago but then I forgot to post it here ... duhhh!!!   Thought I'd better catch up on that before I do  anything else and forget again!!  lol
I actually made two cards this time and I'll show the first one here.  The papers are from the Dreaming in the Meadows Mini Pack.  I'll actually give you a list of the products used at the end of this post.
I used white cardstock for the base and layered the papers with some netting in between to give it a softer look.  I then machine stitched around the edges. 
 This corner was curled over and held down by a piece of bling cut from the Daisy Silver Trim to which I've added some tiny beads for extra colour.  I love that pretty lace and just had to add a little piece peeking out from the edge as well as the strip across the middle of the card. 
 The stunning flower is the ivory Heirloom 6.5cm which is, of course, also available from Meg's Garden as is the gorgeous lace.  The two die cuts underneath are Marianne Creatables Frame & Swirls Die and Couture Creations Starburst Doily Die.  The Starburst die cut was trimmed a little to fit in with the design.  The leaves were cut on my Silhouette and edged with white puff paint.
 The wooden flourish is from Kaisercraft and was coloured with Versa Color 'Olive' and I added another piece of the Daisy Silver Trim with the beads in the centre.
 The inside was lined with two more sheets  from the same collection.  These papers are so pretty you don't really need to add anything to them.  I love it!!!

As I said at the beginning of my post, I actually made two cards for my project.  This being the first  and I will show you the second one at a later date.
