"The Magic of You" & "Special"
by Jan Rankine

 "The Magic of You"

I love this beautiful polka dot organza ribbon and the purple velvet rose so much I just had to create a page using them.


The ribbon is so easy to work with and makes great bows.  I've also added some roses, rosebuds and a gardenia.  I think these velvet leaves finish off any cluster perfectly.  I use them all the time.

The new rainforest butterflies are so delicate and pretty.  I've also cut separate hearts from the silver diamonte trim.


These new trims are so pretty - they sparkle quite a lot and add a bit of "bling" to your pages.

I've used quite a bit of 2 Crafty chipboard on this page - some added to the background.  Also Green Tara lace which I've used in my flower cluster and also tucked in around the page.


Once again the Green Tara polka dot organza ribbon inspired me - it comes in so many different colours and matches all the Green Tara flowers.

One of my favourites is Bud n Bow ribbon - it is so soft and pretty.  I've also used a little bit of Green Tara Lace for added interest.

            Gardenias & roses look so good together.                     .


Just look how beautifully the ribbon and the flowers compliment each other.
