Lace & Pearls (& a bit of Kraft for Good Measure!)



Wow! It's Sunday again & time for another challenge at Sentimental Sundays which is "Lace & Pearls" (+ a sentiment) & we are sponsored by the wonderful The East Wind & the DT were lucky enough to get some gorgeous images from them.  For something different this time I coloured my image with chalk.  The papers are The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady & were free with a mag ages ago.  I distressed the edges & finished off with lace, flowers, punched heart & butterflies, pearls, liquid pearls & stamped sentiment.  

The challenges:
Stampavie & More - Butterflies
Fairy Tale - Kraft
Brown Sugar - Spring
Creative Corner - Nature Inspired
Allsorts - Spring is in the Air
Digi Galore - It's All About Her/Mother's Day
World Wide Open Design Team Challenge - Be Part of a DT
Cute Card Thursday - Die Cuts & Punches 
The Pink Elephant - Girly Girl


I hope you're having a lovely weekend.  I went to the Knit & Stitch Show at Olympia in London yesterday which was fab, I got a few goodies & a few ideas :o)  Today was spent catching up with my crafting & the Voice (tv prog) & baking/eating buns.  Hugs xxx
