With Love Card



Another two challenges make up this card. An old favourite, Play Date Cafe came up with a trio of soft pastel shades and a new one, the Friday Mash Up, provided a sketch along with the inspiration to include embossing.

Plus I've included another handmade flower using tulle, lace, bead string and a button. I know I always say this but it was really easy to make. Especially with a glue gun. I just spiralled lace around a circle of card which I had punched out, attached some tulle to the back and added embellishments to the front with a button. It's the kind of task one can set about whilst watching TV. Perfect for a lazy sunday afternoon too. Px

Are you feelin' lucky? Like you want another cupcake? I'm a thinkin' another confectionary delight is heading your way! That flower is absolutely gorgeous and in no way reflects the ease in which you say it is to make. :) It looks beautiful and intricate and delicate and difficult and just perfect. Love the addition of the pearls, they provide the sweet elegance that goes hand in hand with the vintage appeal. I adore your card... :)
Keep the inspiration coming!
