Just Magnolia – Lace it up

Our challenge at Just Magnolia this week is LACE IT UP – so you can take the challenge literally and do some lacing up on your card, or you can use lace – real or paper, so nice and easy.

I’ve gone with the easy option – lace (that’s a no brainer for me lol).  This card is a commission (one of three christening cards that have been ordered) and the spec was this particular Magnolia image, pink, soft yellow and butterflies – just my kind of card.

I resorted to Distress Inks to colour the image – me no likey the Copic pinks, they are either to dark or too harsh.  The sentiment is computer generated (I used Amazone and Chocolate Box, both free fonts)

The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts, I used Classic Sweet Roses. cherry blossoms, 20mm roses, 15mm roses, 10mm roses, and gypsophila.  The gorgeous guipure butterfly lace is also from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The paper is Marianne D Baby Girl.

I used my new sewing machine that I got from Cooper Sewing Machines – I love it!  I have been using one of those little Janome machines and whilst it sews brilliantly there is not much choice in stitches and stitch sizes.  My new machine is all singing, all dancing lol – does 27 stitches, is nice and light and best of all was under £100.  Bargain!  It arrived in a couple of days as well (and I only just got round to taking it out the box I’ve been so busy).

Right I need to get cracking again, no rest for the wicked and I am soooo wicked lol.  Have a fabulous weekend.

Thanks for stopping by,
