Vintage Wedding

Hi Crafters,

I'm popping in today to share a card for the challenge at Frilly & Funky - 3 is Not a Crowd.
I have included 3 flowers and 3 pearls in a group on this vintage wedding card to qualify for the challenge.


Recipe
Patterned Papers - Anna Marie Designs
Tonic Studio Veranda Die
Joy Crafts 6002/0172 Corner Die
Cottage Cutz Wedding bells Die

Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts

I'd also like to enter these challenges:

Unicorn Challenge - #28 ATG

It's been very windy throughout the night and in to this morning but not as bad as some have had it on the West coast and further up in the North. Things have been flying around in the garden which I thought were secure so several trips to pick up stray plant pots etc, I've decided to lay the wooden bird table down on the grass as I don't think it will take another battering. I hope you are all ok where you are.
See you soon,

Lorraine

For Mum...

Hi Crafters,

This was the Christmas card that I made for my mum this year, she loves poinsettias and has quite green fingers when keeping them successfully from one year to the next.



I thought I'd make an easel card to show off this lovely Craft Creations decoupage image.
I layered the tartan paper from Craft Sensations on to glitter card for a beautiful sparkling border and used metallic gold card for the rest of the mats and to cut my Britannia Die sentiment. Grossgrain ribbon from stash.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Allsorts Challenge - #447/8 Seasonal Flowers
Crafty Creations - #357 ATG
Fussy & Fancy - #202 Christmas

Bye for now,
Lorraine
