 Hi beautiful bloggers! At last, a card, and yes - it's another of those gorgeous LOTV
stamped images! The theme of the challenge at LOTV this week is another of Bev's fabulous sketches, which are always a joy to work with, and I am also entering the card into the
challenge at A Spoonfull of Sugar. The challenge this week is to use your die-cut machines, and punches.
The happy couple have been coloured with Copics and cut out with a Nestie "Labels One" die, inked around the edges with Tattered Rose DI. Frosted Lace Stickles added here and there.
Base card is Bazzill, the lacy BP was bought on
holiday 2 years ago and this is it's first outing (just couldn't bear to use it)!
Border punch is MS Doily Lace, Sentiment from a set by Hero Arts, cut out with a circular Nestie, and layered onto a slightly larger punched circle of pink card. Edges inked with DI.
Loads of pearl gems, cream satin ribbon, and some flowers I made from pink organza ribbon (do they remind you of jelly-fish)?
Thanks for popping by - have a wonderful weekend.

Hiya Sylvia,
I can understand why you didn't want to use that beautiful paper but the result is worth it!
Such a beautiful card and the colours and colouring is wonderful as ever.
Not jelly fish but pretty Love-in-a-mist flowers!!!!
You've worked wonders with the sketch Sylvia :-)
It took one and a half minutes for your blog to partially load, my broad band connection is getting slower and slower and blogging/surfing in the evening is becoming hell :-(

Hi Sylvia

I knew I'd missed your last post and it's taken me this long to get back to have a look, how bad is that. Anyay, it was definitely worth coming back, it's gorgeous. I love this stamp and your colouring is beautiful. Those little mesh flowers are really pretty, not like jelly fish at all.
See you soon.
