New Toy!

I have FINALLY taken the new toy from the box! And cut out lots of large labels! (Only because at the moment the labels are the only large nesties I have - but am sure that will be rectified soon.... lol)
So here's a wee bit of fluffiness made with a couple of the said labels.
I haven't mounted this onto a card yet and am not sure I will - might try and find a frame instead... will think about it.
I used white pearlised paper throughout. After cutting out,  I embossed the dots onto the smaller label and embossed round the larger label. I used Spun Sugar (which is quickly becoming one of my favourites) distress ink round the edges and then brushed over both labels randomly. The flourish is a Sissiz one which got the same distressed brush treatment! 
The LOTV stamp is one I have been promising myself for eons.... and I finally bought it when I had the recent mad spendie. I coloured it with promarkers and distress inks and added a teeny dabbing of stickles on the dress for a bit of sparklie girlyness...!
The flowers were from my stash - I like the pink pearl stamens especially and need to buy some flat backed pink pearls to match them (any excuse to spend some more). To finish off, I popped on some pearls, a couple of tiny fabric butterflies (these were real fiddly - don't think I'll be using them a lot despite having an entire string of them!) and finally added a small metal heart charm with a pearl top.
The love theme challenges are still ongoing so (takes a deep breath) here's a few challenges -
Craft Catz - Hearts
Craft Your Days Away - Photo Inspiration (and the photo made me think of weddings)
Cute Card Thursday - Hearts and Flowers
Paper Sundaes - Choose 3 toppings and I chose - Flowers, Distressing and Pink
2 Sisters - Hearts    
Crazy 4 Challenges - Hearts
Paper Cupcakes - Shaped with embossing
