Marvelous Magnolia - Pearls and Lace


 
Morning :)
 
So, today sees the start of our 2nd challenge at Marvelous Magnolia where this week our theme is 'Pearls & Lace' (my favourites!).  We have 2 fabby sponsors this week too, and I really, really, really wish I could enter! lol

I actually won this gorgeous, cute stamp called 'Rose Scent Tilda' from Tilda's Town earlier this year, and I couldnt resist buying a few more at the same time as they do FREE WorldWide Shipping (how amazing is that!)  - its actually quite often a deal-breaker for me - lol ;) 
 
I hand-stitched Prima Papers and shabbied them up with a bit of white acrylic paint.  The dies are a mix of  Doo-Hickey and Nellie Snellen and the flowers and lace are WOC.  The metal corner and key are Tim Holtz and the twiggy seed pods were again nicked from my pot pourri.
 
Thanks so much for visiting my blog, and have a smashing day!
 
 This card is available to buy from my Etsy Shop HERE

Your card is absolutely marvelous Alison!!!!! Love the soft romantic colouring and the gorgeous flowers! Hugs, Brigitte

Paula (PEP) said...

I'm surprised there is anything left in the pot pourri bowl!. Your muted reds with the soft neutrals plus whie & the odd splash of green makes this very effective. I particularly like your colouring of her dungarees.
