It's time again

Sitting here writing this post to be scheduled for tomorrow. It's cold today, not more than 18 degrees Celcius and I am freezing. Who stole the summer? I promise when the kids goes back to school and everyone starts to work again, then will the heat be back. LoL

This weeks challenge over at Bearly Mine Challenges is "Girly Birthday card". With that we mean tons of glitter, pink, purple, flowers, lace, pearls etc. As my hands has been a bit off this last week or so, I used a Vintage picture that I had stacked away. I am not sure where I got it from or anything, but it suited this purpose. So no colouring this time, how strange. It doesn't happen very often when I make cards. I kind of took inspiration from a blogging buddy of mine; Annelie who always makes the most stunning vintage cards and creations.


Back to my creation my papers are from the digi set Roses dream lovely papers in that set. I bet you all will love them if you try them out. They are paired up with some lace in two different makes, one very broad that started out as white but when me and my distress tool was done it has a light version of vintage photo. Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts in vintage colours together with some pearl pins of two kinds. I have also stuch a piece of T.H filmstrip under the largest flower arrangement. Some pearls from Rox stamps and BunnyZoes. Tones of glitter stickles in golden rod and diamond. Have also used a doily made with a cherryl Lynn die for the inside of the card, and some jolly old ovals from Spellbinders where there is space to write a little greeting.

We are sponsored by The Ribbon Reel. Be sure to check them out. Up for grabs are a gift voucher worth £10. So this will be it for today. I do hope you come and join us in our challenge and that you enjoy playing with us.

Love n hugs
Marie
