Pearls and Lace

Good Morning my dear crafty friends and followers

Today is my 13th Wedding Anniversary and my dear hubby is taking me out for the day.  We are going to have a day together as I have been out at the show last weekend and then this weekend coming up I am going to the Trade Show at the NEC.  I can't believe how time has just flown by but I have a very loving and supporting hubby.  Well less about me going on and here is my card.

Recipe & Method

1.  Centura pearlescent card in lilac.  I cut out and embossed using roses border Spellbinder.  I coloured this with chalks and used hairspray to prevent it wiping off.  I attached to the end of the card.
2.  First layer is a piece of floral paper from Dawn Bibby's Flower Patch collection and cut out an oval.  I have attached white lace ribbon around the oval the attached to the card base.
3.  Stamped one of my SWALK stamps onto Neenah card and cut out using Spellbinder scalloped oval.  I coloured the image using my watercolour pencils and then using Dew Drops Brilliance in Pearlescent lavender distressed the rest of the card.  I attached purple pearls around the edges.
4.  I have added a sentiment from my stash.  I have used one of my floral charms and attached this to a lilac bow.

Thank you for stopping by Today
