Add Lace and Pearls

every month so that I can get ahead instead of panicking  in November!!!





I  love that I can share them with you because nobody will know which 
card or gift they will receive.!! there is method in my madness!! lol


I used sweet Cloudy Love Tilda from 
A Touch of Love 2016 collection
 and coloured her with my copics along with Derwent 
soft pencils for shading. 



My paper are Vintage Summer Basics 6x6 from Maja designs 
Flowers are made with stamps and dies from Heartfelt creations.
Doily dies are Prima and Cheery Lynne dies.  The  lace element is
just peeking out of the middle of the card  and my pearls are dotted
around the card.
