Lilies and lace



Good Morning to you all, hope everyone had a good weekend. The weather was a bit iffy here, but at least the wind has dropped and it's not raining at the moment.

Just a couple of shares of card using more Tonic Pick of the Bunch punch and stamp sets which I am still loving.........in case you hadn't guessed. The one at the top has an Artistic Outpost sentiment and flowers from the Peruvian Lily set shaded round the edge with Pan Pastels and the DP is Kaiser I think..........it was a paper pad and I've not got the outside cover any more. The little butterfly is from the Pick of the Bunch Fuchsia stamp set, stamped and glittered and the leaves Memory Box.

I would like to enter this into:

Flutterby Wedesdays - Open theme


This one uses stamps from several of the stamp sets.............thumbnail links below.......for the background, TH fence and dress form which I decorated with lace and ribbons and the roses are made from vellum using the Punch and Stamp Rose set and again shaded with Pan Pastels. I cut the top of the card with an oval die by taping it in position the laying it with only the part I wanted cut onto the cutting place with the rest sticking out............hope that makes some sort of sense.

I would like to enter this one into:

Pan Pastels - In the pink (hope these's enough pink)

Have a great week all of you and thanks for popping in and your kind comments.

  30. I love the way your vellum roses echo the stamped roses behind your mannequin & I absolutely love her lacey dress & pink pearls. But, it is the first that causes me to do a double-take. The selective use of orange is quite spectacular & I love the tiny accents of blue in the background paper. A real treat to see - those lilies look so real too.
