Pearls and Lace

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are you all today? I have a busy morning before I set off for Port Sunlight to help Sue and Harvey set up for tomorrows Happy Stamper Show.

Today's card is another autumnal card.

Step by Step

1. A5 white tent card.
2. First layer is brown pearlescent card.
3. The second layer is paper from my stash which I matted and layered onto the card and wrapped brown lace around before adhering to card base.
4. The topper is from Lelli-bot crafts which I matted and layered onto leaf patterned card.
5. To finish off I added a leaf, green pearl strands and roses.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Crafting Musketeers #18 - Autumn Colours
Eclectic Ellapu (Pink) - Flowers
The Sisters of Craft - Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter #176 - Pearls
Inspiration Destination #1 - Anything Goes
A Creative Romance - In the Garden

Many thanks for stopping by Today

I cannot thank you enough for playing along with my Dream Team and me on the launch of our new ATG challenge blog!

About your card... GORGEOUS! I love the colors! Beautiful topper! I guess that's what you call the clip art? lol I've seen the word before but never knew what was meant by it but seeing your card... I'm thinking that's what you are referring to. I call that clip art. I feel so educated now. Thank you! :) xx

Again, thanks for joining us for our current ATG challenge. Hope to see you again and good luck!
