Lace and Pearls

Hi All, happy Sunday!

We're having yet another snowstorm today that they say will last well into tomorrow as well. Perfect stamping weather! So, that's what I did this afternoon! Hope you're doing something fun too!

Here's a card for the Magnolia vs. Stampavie challenge which was to create a card using lace and pearls. You must also use a Magnolia or Stampavie image. I only have a couple Magnolias so I went with this cute Tilda holding a present and made a birthday card. I colored her with Copics and added some white gel pen highlights and glitter to her wings, which was giving me trouble and is now looking kind of messy.

I used some Parisian Breeze DSP from SU! and the cardstock colors are Kraft, Chocolate Chip, and Baja Breeze. I didn't have any lace so I created a lace edge with my eyelet punch from SU! and used some lacy-ish ribbon. The flowers are Prima with pearl centers and I adhered more pearls around the image. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy what's left of your weekend! Happy Stamping!

If you have mailed them already as of today, but they are not listed as received yet, email me and I'll try to wait for them. I have received quite a few, but we are still missing some.
