Lace & Bows #122

Good Morning all, I do hope this Sunday morning finds you all well :)

It's time for a new challenge over at THE CRAFTY PAD and our theme this week is one you're gonna love....


Told you!! Hee-hee! And not only that, but we also have a fabby sponsor this week: CRAFTY SENTIMENTS DESIGNS. The winner will get to choose 3 digis from their shop.....and they are just delightful images I have to say!

The DT got to use some of TCP's adorable Chloe Fairy designs this week, along with the option of the butterflies and verse too.

Here's my card:

As you can see, I made a twisted easel and used Fairy Chloe on Mushroom and the butterfly verse. I coloured it with Promarkers.

I went for Autumnal colours and used MME papers and edged in brown ink.

My lace is on the base, in teal and chocolate, and is from a local haberdashers, and I also added a paper border too. The flowers and decorative pins are from WOC.

The double-layered butterflies are made using my craft tonic punch, and I added some co-ordinating pearls. The flower buttons are also from the local haberdashery, along
with the organza ribbon for the bow. The pearls are from my stash.

Here is the beautiful butterfly verse, which you can get from TCP shop, HERE.

I took lots of photos of this card, I just couldn't seem to get one that captured it properly!

I am going to enter my card into the following challenges:
Thanks for popping by!
