Pearls and Lace

How fast are these weeks going by, they say it's sign of old age when you start saying that, but i take comfort in the fact that my children are saying it too.
This fortnight we bring you a new challenge and the theme has been chosen by Wynn and it's Pearls and Lace.
The team brings you fabulous inspiration once again, just click on the link to see them all.
For my card i have used C.U.P. premium collection CD, my base card was cut out on the cameo,
the image is decoupaged, the images of the roses are so beautiful and i have used a ball tool to give it a bit more definition, added lace to the edges with pearl clusters and some beautiful stems among the roses with pearls .
I hope you like what the team have done for your inspiration and do hope you can join us again with this fun challenge.

Gorgeous Gowns

Thank for the all the lovely entries for our last challenge, now i have to ask you to bear with me again while go through them and pick my top three.
This fortnight we have the pleasure of the company of two guest designers both very well know to you all and they are Pauline (aka Crafting with Cot nob) And Meg (aka Bits and pieces). 
I love the work these talented ladies produce and i know you do too, so for their first inspirational cards they have for you is with Carol choice of theme and that is Glorious Gowns .
For my card i have used a white DL card and trimmed the top corners to make a large tag , the papers i used came from Debbi Moore's Venetian collection. I made two of the dolls, ( i believe this is tasha) so i could cut one just for the dress which i then put in an embossing folder (Sheena's fabulous florals) , the doll has been coloured with copic pens and just a tiny bit of bling.  
I hope you like it and the rest of the teams fabulous creations , so come and join us in our latest challenge Glorious gowns with Carol, just click the link below.
