You light up my life.

Hello folks!

Todays card is another one that seemed perfect in the planning stage ( inside my head) but in reality is somehow not quite right. I think, with hindsight, it would have been better done in landscape, so I might have another go at it later.
Anyway here is the card, let me know what you think.

I`m entering it in 3 Challenges,
Picture Perfect Creations who ask for Heat/ Dry embossing.
The Shabby Tea Room #45  which is called White and Bright,with instructions to use white with a splash of another colour and this piccy for inspiration,

And Our Creative Corner
who gave us this sketch,  called `Lets play dress up` and asked us to simply dress up the sketch..

I`ve used the OCC sketch as my base and used a circle instead of the oval.
I ran some white card through the Cuttlebug using the Swirls folder then matted it onto some hot pinkcard.
I made a border using the Spellbinders Grand Classic Lace die, also in hot pink.
The image is from the Papermania Chatsworth Collection stamped in Memento Rose Bud, cut out with a circle die and mounted onto a Lacey Circle in pink.
The sentiment is computer generated, also cut out in a circle and mounted onto a Lacey Circle.
I made the flower in the same hot pink card and added a pink sparkle brad.
Some pink gems on the image for a bit of bling to finish.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx


  1. I think your card is very elegant. I love the D'vine Swirl EF in the back ground, it really does add to the elegant of your card. Your Grand Clasic Lace die is to parton the pun die for..*giggle*! I just love, love, love it and the circles are just awesome. Thank you so much for sharing this little beauty with us at PPC this week. Hope we will see you next week too.
