Challenge #59
Lace and Pearls

This fortnights challenge of Lace and Pearls has been chosen by me :), I so love lace and pearls on cards but these days don't seem to make them often alas.

To make this card I first got my bundle of lace out, oh what a joy.  I collect half metres of lace material when I am out and about and this piece was bought in an Indian shop in Saudi Arabia, I just fell in love with the turquoise and gold and could not resist.  The lace was stitched to a blank base and then I added the frame on top which was made using 2 Spellbinder square dies.  This card is for my daughter and although neither of us tend to head for unicorns she came in one day and gave me this die she had bought when out shopping so I just had to use it here, on her birthday card, a nice way to say thank you :).  She also moaned to me sometime ago that I don't put daughter on cards (I do tend to put her name instead) and bought me the daughter die Christmas so again, this is the perfect place to use it.  I finished off with some other dies and flat back pearls.  All the dies were cut on white card and coloured to match in with the lace.

  1. I loved working with your theme as it makes the cards so elegant. I think all the DT have excelled this week and your card no exception and is perfect for your daughter - she almost made it herself. lol My sons stay clear of buying me any craft items, I wouldn't be without them but oh for a daughter.
