Lace, Lace, and More Lace at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge
Happy Friday to each of you!! I hope you are finishing up a wonderful week and are looking forward to a marvelous weekend!! I will be going to St. Louis for a few days for a little R&R and to take a family friend to see the Cardinals and Phillies baseball game as a part of his Happy 90th Year Birthday present!!! So I will report to you when I get back!!! I have pre-scheduled some postings so let's all keep our fingers crossed that Mr Blogger Man is back with us!!!
In spite of all of the Blogger problems...arghhhhhh!!!...today is a new challenge over at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge where we are hosted by Claudia who has selected the theme Make it Lacy so we would like to see LACE featured somewhere on your project – either real or faux/punched/die cut/ paper etc. Doesn't that sound like fun?!? So please come on over and play along with us and have a look at the wonderful sample cards done by the other DT members. There are a couple of fabulous prizes this week--Jacobi.nl and Creative Treasures are our magnificent sponsors for this challenge.
For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting is PTI. The DP is from the Crate Paper Portrait Collection and all background panels are machine stitched. The image I have used is that darling little Tilda with Lace Jeans from the Butterfly Dreams Collection at Magnolia-licious. She was stamped on Cryogen White and colored with Copics, adding a touch of Stickles to the lace and hairbow and Liquid Pearls to the buttons. She was cut out with double Nesties and encircled with some sweet lace which was a special gift from the very talented Suzan--thank you so very much, Sweetie!! The midground panel was also encircled with the same lace. For the horizontal I used an organza ribbon tied into a double bow to dangle a silver heart charm from silver cording. The floral treatment is all from Wild Orchid Crafts: 30mm Wild Roses and Hip Rosebuds. To finish the front I used WOC Self-Adhesive Pearls to all corners.
The inside is quite simple. On the first panel I used the same lace from the front with another organza bow and on the second panel a triple Nestie and even more lace! Hey, the theme was MAKE IT LACY so I tried!!!! hahahaha
Thank you so very much for dropping by to have a peek at my little card and you know I love having you here! I would like to know what you think of my little girlie this week. Please come back often! Have a wonderful day and until our next meeting, BIG HUGS for YOU!!!
