Amour

Good Morning All!
I hope I find you well and not suffering too much in this miserable february weather.
It`s the 1st of the month and that can only mean one thing. A brand new challenge at St Lukes Charity Card Challenge.
This month we want                 Love and Lace
 Amour is the word this month- make a romantic card for a wedding, anniversary or birthday to the one you love. Add some lace for a romantic finish.

Here is my card to give you some inspiration,
For my card I used a pale peachy pearlescent card cut to make a 6x6 square.
The image and the DP are both from Joanna Sheen Victorian Romance cd.
I cut the image out and matted it onto some peach card cut with my fancy scissors (not used those for years).
I added some cream lace and a border (in peach) punched with a Martha Stewart doily punch, then overlaid that with some peach ribbon.
I made a double loop bow, threaded some gold cord through a button, tied it in a bow and added that to the ribbon bow.
I made some stick pins with some silver beading wire and added some pearl beads from my stash and finished the whole thing off with some tiny clear gems on the border and in the solitaire ring

I hope you like it and it inspires you to join in the fun. Don`t forget that you can donate your card (or any other spare cards you may have) to raise funds for this worthy cause. The postal address in on the main blog.
And don`t forget to visit the rest of the design team and check out their fabulous makes.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  5. Hi Lynne,
    Your card is beautiful. I love the papers and pretty image you used. Your ribbon, pins, and lace look gorgeous!:)
    I've been having problems with blogger, and for some reason I've only just been able to view your card.
