I ♥ Promarkers - Blue and White




Ooh, it seems ages since I posted a card - I cant believe its been a week! :) I have been quite busy with Christmas preparations though, it gets mental this time of year eh?

Anyway onto our new challenge at I ♥ Promarkers, where the theme this week is 'Blue and White' and we are sponsored by the brilliant Crafty Emmas Store.

I used a stamp I bought ages ago from Crafts and Me (I love this image) and it was really quick and easy to colour.  The leaves were cut from the hidden part of the deep lace border and I have no idea how many years I have had this lace, some of it is quite faded.  I hand-stitched  K&Co paper, used spellbinder dies, ribbon from Joanna Sheen and the flowers are WOC dipped in frosty glitter.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Totally Papercrafts - Anything but Christmas
Do You Stack Up - Something old - the lace
Allsorts Challenge - It Takes 2 - 2 colours
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Dont look at the Light/Sparkle
Creative Craft Challenges - Stitching
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards - Celebrate - I think she is off to a masked ball :)

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, I will be back tomorrow with something a little different :)

Slowly catching up on comments - I shall get to that email!! Anyhow this is a real beauty & I love the ethereal ambience you created with the lace & how those lacey leaves echo the details of her wings. the little touches of greenery serve to highlight the beautiful iciness of the whole & I particularly like your placing of those two gems. I love your shading of her skin especially - her cheeks & the dimesnion in her jaw are just super.
