Evening all

Well today over on Facebook Ditzy-Craftymess group Shendy set us the challenge today to use lace. After much deliberation I decided to use one of my CD's it is called Beautiful Dreamers and is a disc made in collaboration with Jem's Designs and the Glitter Girls. I just love the images on this CD and decided to go for a different colour than my usual pink and purple for a change.

I have used an 8 x 8 square pearlescent card and rounded the corners with my corner punch.  The first layer is grey card I had in my stash I have had for years and don't know where I got it!  I then opened my graphics programme and resized the insert from the disc to use as the second layer.  I printed this off onto glossy card.  I then used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Forest Moss to define the edges and also used the corner punch to round the edges.  The two toppers I printed again on Glossy card and cut them out and edged them in the above ink.  I attached them to the second layer using Pinflair glue gel and rounded the so the centre was raised.  I made a bow using black lace and added some hat pins which are new and a couple of flowers from my stash.
Thank you for stopping by
