Lace Frame

Hi All! I`m back.

We had a fabulous week. The weather was amazing and I would like to thank you all for your kind wishes regarding the weather because I`m sure it made a difference. We had some lovely trips out to the North Yorkshire Moors and Dalby Forest. Visited some smashing little towns and villages and saw some amazing sights. No photos unfortunetly, we passed a field full of beautiful red poppies that I would have loved to take a piccy of but doing 60 in the car isn`t good for photography. I also didn`t get as much crafting in as I usually do.
I did manage to make one card though that is a tale in itself.
I saw this way of working with borderbilities on  Becca Feeken`s 
fabulous blog. That girl must have a degree in engineering because believe me matching these corners up and getting the pattern right took me, with an enormous amount of help from hubby, a heck of a long time. We worked on it on and off for three days before I was happy and even then when we got back and I rechecked Becca`s it`s not quite right.
Anyway here is my card .
I`m entering it into this weeks  Our Creative Corner.
which luckily for me is asking for us to cool down with blues and greens.
The gorgeous DP is by Shabby Princess and I love it to bits.
The frame is a Spellbinders Borderbilities.
The sentiment is stamped in Versacolor baby blue and heat embossed.
Because my corners are no where near as neat as Becca`s I`ve punched some flowers out of white paper and added a pale blue flat backed pearl.

Now I have an idea of how to do these frames and where I went wrong, I will have another go but not just yet lol.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  1. Super elegant! I love that frame, I know what you mean about matching up the borders. I have a hard time also, but the real ingenuity is learning how to disguise the "messy" parts. You've done a great job!

  3. Wow Lynne, this is so beautiful! What an achievement to cut the border so perfectly. I'm sure those little flowers weren't really necessary, but they look fabulous!
    Thanks for popping by my blog today - your comments are much appreciated.
    Hugs, Sylvia xxx

  4. I love it and think you are being hard on yourself about the corners, but that's a good idea covering up something you don't like with a punched flower. So glad you had a good holiday, the weather has been superb for you. xxx

  5. Welcome back! Glad you had a fabulous time - don't think there's anywhere better to be in good weather. Love your card with its soft greens and blues. I'd never have known about the corners if you hadn't mentioned it, but the flowers look great anyway!
