Summer Lovin'

Friday, 13 July 2012

Good afternoon everyone

It's Friday once again - Friday the 13th to be exact!!  So be careful out there!!

One nice thing about this Friday the 13th is that it's another new challenge on the Alphabet Challenge blog, this time chosen by the lovely boss - Lesley!  We're up to L and the challenge is....

L for Lace!

We didn't have very many entries last time but I'm sure there'll be more with this lovely challenge.

My card was made for my cousin who got married last week in Spain - at least she got better weather than she would've got at home, it's done nothing but rain here for weeks!
Anyway, here's my card:

I used one of my favourite digi stamps again - You & Me Baby by Tiddlyinks.
Coloured with the following copics: Skin; E21,13,00,0000,R20. Dress: RV32,10,R00,E40. Suit: B02,01,00,000,0000,G00,BG10,C2. Hair: E49,39,35,33.

The papers are by Melissa Frances from the 5th Avenue pad.  The little heart is by Magnolia and I coloured it with a clear Sakura stardust pen and stuck a little swarovski crystal to it.  The frame and corner are also by Melissa Frances.  I die cut the Spellbinder fleur de lis square with my cuttlebug and computer generated the sentiments and punched with Stampin' Up! punches.  The ribbon and lace are from my stash.

The inside uses the same papers, ribbon and lace.  The left side is a pocket for the gift and the sentiment is from Wild Rose Studios.

So that's my lacy card.  Why don't you join us in this fortnights challenge on the Alphabet Challenge Blog!

Your card is beautiful! Lovely papers and colors, love the frame around the image and the heart. And your coloring is fantastic! I love how you've added the names of the newly weds on the front - it makes this card so much more personal, a nice touch.
