Lace And Pearls

Good morning everyone, did you have a good Fathers Day, we had a bbq and toasted David with a nice glass of wine, he was thoroughly spoilt by all his girls lol!! The weather is very unsettled again here in Yorkshire, looks like we could be in for another down pour!...hope it's sunny where you are... well being Tuesday it's time for another lovely challenge at 'Papertake Weekly' and Dawny would love to see some Lace/ Pearls or both on your card. My friends daughter is turning 30 soon and loves her dogs, but also loves handbags and shoes!! so I turned to this lovely image again from LOTV, I do love this stamp and it's a breeze to colour....  I used my Inktense pencils again.. I am loving them!!

On the inside

I'm not too sure about the numbers on this card, I think they are too big, but too late to change it now as I used Incredibly Tacky Glue and it really sticks lol!!... anyway I embossed them and the corner embellishment with shabby pink embossing powder by Stampendous.  I added lace and string pearls I did want to put more pearls on the inside, but have run out of them... Oh! dear! I'll have to go shopping again lol!!..  Sorry about the photo's I still haven't quiet got the light right yet lol!!

  15. I'm glad to see you getting on so well with the Inktense pencils Marjorie, great results. Just having a catch up, I'm so behind with my blog visiting so I've had a browse!
    I never got to the Doncaster show, I planned to go but it's my holiday soon so I'm trying to take it easy as my hip has been feeling a lot better (and I would only have bought lots of things I don't need!)
