Totally Papercrafts Challenge

Morning all, it's Friday and that means it's time for a new challenge at Totally Papercrafts

This week it's the turn of the lovely Wendy to set the challenge and she has chosen the theme

Flowers and Lace

We're sponsored this week by J&C Creations and Stamp Fairy.

Those of you who who've been here a while and know me well will know that flowers and lace just aren't my thing so this was a bit of a challenge for me!

This was a card I was asked to make by a friend for her friend who liked "pretty things" - that's almost as bad as telling me they like pink. However, I think I managed it! And the paper is peach... not you know what ;)

I used a Stampin' Up sentiment as the focal point, chucked some flowers, pearls and lace at the card and hey ho, Bob's your uncle (well, he was, in fact, my Dad but that's neither here nor there)
