Macaroon Inspiration

Hello All,

I was browsing my favourite blogs recently and came across the challenge at The Lollipop Ladies, which is to be inspired by this picture of macaroons and add some gloss.



I knew instantly I had something in me for this challenge - those macaroons were shimmering just like a pile of cardstock I had stashed away, and in all the right colours. So here is the card I made....





I scored an inside border on the DCWV textured card so the core was showing, did a little sanding all around the edges and then decided to add some pearl paint. The shimmery cardstocks were cut with my circle spellbinders and run through various embossing folders with my Bigshot. The ribbon is organza and has quite stiff bendy edges on it. I cut a tag out of the same cardstock and stamped a sentiment on it. Then added a little glossy butterfly bead. The tag and the butterfly are tied onto the ribbon with some clear bead making thread. A couple of square blings finished it off.

As usual, I hope you like it - I sure had fun making it :)
