Lace and Pearls…



Good evening peeps, thanks so much for stopping by

I’ve sneaked up into the attic to do some crafting and it’s boiling up here, I’ve got the fan on but I think I’ll do this post and call it a day – it’s stifling!!

I have a card to share for the new challenge over at Papertake Weekly 

We thought it was time for some nice girlie cards so our theme this week is a lovely one…

Lace & Pearls

You can use either or both, my card is actually one I did a while back for a magazine but I wasn’t happy with it so I took a few bits off and remade it, now I like it better lol



PTW 63 - Lace & Pearls



 PTW 63 - Lace & Pearls 2



I used a LOTV topper for my card, the image is also available as a stamp called Emma Presents but the art pads are great for a quick card if you don’t have time to colour, this one is from Party and Cake

The papers are the Heartfelt collection and the sentiment is from their Set 9 which has loads of useful words to mix and match either in the circular border or on their own

I made a paper lace border (I think that counts as lace!) with a Joanna Sheen die and cut the flowers with an EK Success retro flower punch – each one has a flatback pearl in the centre

The gem flourishes are from K&Co and I finished with a few dots of liquid pearls around the image




Hope you like it, you can see all the challenge details and some fab inspiration from the DT over on the Papertake blog

Right I’m going before I melt, I hope you’re enjoying your Friday evening and looking forward to the weekend
