And here's another one !

Here's another card that I've made for my niece's birthday..... 2 down 2 to go ! The main images are from a stamp set I picked up from a new craft shop that's opened in our local garden centre. How handy is that ! I've shaded them with ProMarkers and cut them out with an oval deckle edged Nestability. I've used Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord DI around the edge. The purple background is made with the same DI and then I've stamped an Elusive Images backgound stamp with Dusty Concord. The lace is made with a stamp that I've had for ages and this is the first time I've used it. I've stamped with black Archival onto tissue paper and used the reverse side so it was a little more faded.

The flower is made with Mulberry paper and black tissue paper using the Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die. I've wet the edges of the Mulberry paper and gently teased away some of the fibres. The centre brad is one of my last Marah Johnson one's ( if any one knows where I can get some more I'd love to hear from you! ) The background paper is Papermania and the sentiment is from an Aspects of Design stamp set. The border punch is a Martha Stewart.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges :

Well it's been very cold here today and I was surprised to see snow when I opened the curtains this morning. I managed to get off our estate without any problems, let's just hope it's that easy tomorrow !

Hope you're all keeping warm !
Thanks for looking
