Every Day is a Special Occasion Card

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a card I made to contain a special message for my friendship positive message swap with my friends. This one is obviously for my friend Kirstin! I used My Mind Eye papers, and used the paper with a frame to write her name inside with my fountain pen. I then decorated this frame with a light pink butterfly. I cut the dress form and sentiment paper and made it into a focal point for my card. I matted it on pink cardstock, and embellished with pink gems and a butterfly. I then made a border with paper, rose ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, scalloped cardstock and pearls and then placed my image on one side of this. Lastly I used glitter domes for the top left hand corner.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently.
