Card Crafter's Circle! It's all about pearls and lace. I have used this image by Di's Digi Downloads and I just love her because she is girly yet has a touch of tomboyishness about her. That's me! As I get older and my girls love these feminine things, I am discovering that I to enjoy them. My oldest is turning 13 in a few days and I asked what she wanted and she said for me to take her shopping!!! I remember the times when she groaned at the thought and now, well lets just say she's growing up! Sigh.
For this card I've used some wonderful textured paper that I found at the Dollar Store. It's a wonderful light butter colour! The pink patterned paper is from Magenta and the green paper is from K & Company. I used crochet lace from Stampin' Up and the pearls are from Recollections and Mark Richards. I added some flowers from my collection and then decided to add a green touch. I don't have any greenery so I just twisted the left over stems around my pencil and voila! There is a hidden sentiment on the left. I punched the side with my Fiscars oval punch and then added the sentiment to it.
We would love how you use lace and pearls, it doesn't have to be a card. Hop on over to Card Crafter's Circle so see some great inspiration! We are being sponsored by the wonderful Di's Digi Downloads and the winner will receive $10 to spend in her store!
