Hey Guys,
It's challenge time over on again! so if you would like to have a go pop over there and take part, its all fun and keeps us out of mischief, lol............the theme this time is 'SPRING' don't we all need some of that eh?? and there is also a sketch to follow, devised by our guru leader pop over, say hi and leave your creation linked into the blog.............below is my DT creation this time, hope you like it! I will be sparing a thought for those hit by the earthquake and following tsunami in Japan
Have fun and hope you all have a safe and happy weekend!
I am entering this card in the WOC challenge

I started this creation with a gold 'rose' embossed card blank from my stash, and added a mat of DP from Papermania, 'Rose Garden' this set also provided the sentiment.  I then added my Magnolia image with her spring lamb and i coloured it in with promarkers, sorry guys didn't right down the shades! silly moo i am.......
I cut an oval in my cricut from linen effect white card from my stash, and i stamped an image across the oval which is a peg stamp 'leaf ' design from DoCrafts, V&A Hanoverian Mini Trellis 6pce Stamp Set in a Brilliance Inkpad 'Pearlescent Olive'.........i then added my Magnolia image on top....going back to the base i added (and i dont know how she got me to use it.......) but i used some of my much loved white cotton lace (4cm wide) ..... from my favourite shop of all time HERE.  The amount of flowers, ribbon, seam binding and embellies i have from there is criminal, lol....  I've  also added some baby pink 1/2" satin ribbon & beautiful roses from the same shop, which are from their 'Floral Foundations' (15mm) range in Purple/Lilac shades. The card was then finished off  (observing the sketch)  with 4 irridescent diamantes from my private and very much treasured stash......................................................................................................................
