Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge - Lovely Lace

I can't believe the huge number of fantastic entries we had for our first Wild Orchid Challenge, well over 550 entries oh my goodness!!

This week the challenge is Lovely Lace, so my new DT kit with the gorgeous new lace that's now in stock came just in time.  How exquisite is this Guipure lace?  I am totally in love lol.

I used Papermania Blueberry Hill papers, love the pastel colours of this paper pad.

I have stitched around the borders, not sure if it was really needed but it's done now.  I have coloured the Magnolia Ballerina Tilda with Copics and Promarkers
I used Copics for the skin (E11, E01, E00, E000) and hair (E49, E47, E25, E50) and Promarkers for the dress (Salmon Pink, Cocktail Pink and Pale Pink)

The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and are 35mm wild rose, 25mm roses, 15mm roses, 10mm roses and 8mm semi open roses.

The sentiment is Magnolia greeting of love stamp.  I have dotted some self adhesive rhinestones round the image and also applied the usual Stardust Stickles to the image.

I hope you will pop across to the Wild Orchid Challenge blog to check out my fellow DT's fabulous creations and also the delish prize that's up for grabs again.

  16. Hi Bev
    your card is beautiful, love that lace. When i was looking at your card (3rd picture down), I thought what has Bev used to get that shine on Tilda's ballet shoe, then I put my glasses on and saw that it was the butterfly above your name rotfl.
