Magnolia vs Stampavie challenge - Lace and Pearls

This week the theme for the challenge is lace and pearls, did I ever have fun with this theme lol. I went OTT with the pearls (who me!!) and really enjoyed making this card.

A close up of how I assembled the flower - a large Prima daisy, next one of the organza pull flower blossoms that I was giving away as candy a while ago (love these as they colour so easily with an inkpad and a piece of cut 'n dry foam) and topped off with a mulberry rose (it's probably on the large side but I didn't have a smaller one in that colour). Some of gold spacers from Eggstravaganza dotted about seemed to add to the vintage feel of the card.

I stamped the image twice so I could have a cameo for the inside - at first I thought this would be a faff but colouring both images at the same time doesn't really take any longer than just colouring in the one. I carried the layout on the front through to the inside. It's March tomorrow and I am still decorating the insides of my cards, didn't think I would ever keep it up lol

I hope you’ll go take a look at the cards made by the rest of the DT – they really are fab. Looking forward to seeing your lace and pearl creations!
I’ve received some awards, thanks so much ladies – I am so honoured  xx

  1. Bev this is amazing - I just love everything about it (again) - I always know where to come when I need inspiration.
    Trouble is I've used so much lace and pearls recently I'll have to go shopping before I can enter this challenge.
