Wearing My Brand New Shoes

Sooo, a quick share tonight.  I had planned to do loads of crafting today, but made the mistake of going to see family, which despite my best intentions, meant I spent ages out of the house.  I don't object to seeing them, not at all, I just always end up aaages away from home.  Then, when I did get home, I did some baking.  I have made a lemon meringue.  The jury is out at the moment as to whether it is a success or not, because I am waiting for it to cool before I take it out of the tin.

Anyway, this is a card I started Wednesday before I went to bed and finished when I got in on Thursdat(well, after I woke up from my nap when I got home):

I used a scalloped card blank and a topper from the LOTV Jenny and James art pad and die-cut this to a scalloped oval.  I 3-d stickered this onto a panel made from various papers from my stash.  The spotty paper set the tone for the rest of the card and I worked around that.

I added some lace and then some narrow ivory and blush ribbon.  Behind the image panel, I added a feather and then a small ivory and pink rose.

I added pearls of various sizes in each corner, including the two exposed corners of the pink card.  

I also made a bow from a scrap of the blush ribbon and then added a 'for you' peel off to finish off the card, as I couldn't really find anywhere to add a 'proper sentiment'.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Pile It On - flowers or feather
The Ribbon Girl Lovely Lili - add flowers
Crafty Cardmakers - ribbon lace and pearls
The Paper Shelter - ribbon, twine or floss
Crafty Creations - vintage
Creative Inspirations - going dotty
The Crazy Challenge - colour challenge
Creatalicious - flower power

Apologies for any poor English in this post - I seem to have lost the ability to type today :-(

Anyway, I have Doctor Who to watch tonight then I might make it to my craft room for a quick make.  I have a list a mile long of cards that need making, along with other projects but ne'er mind.

Happy Crafting!
