The weather here once again is DREADFUL! I am fed up with the rain. (Even though it means I can make messy with paper, it would be nice to see some SUN!)
I made this card yesterday (when I should have been dusting... lol - a friend of mine said - 'After 4 years the dust doesn't get any thicker'- don't suppose I'll get away with finding out if her saying is correct!!!!)

I used papers from Pink Petticoat. The background is the 'rose stencil' paper. The pale pink polka dot paper layered and punched hasn't shown up very well in this dreadful light - (honestly, it's so dark, you'd think it was November!) so I apologise for the poor quality of the pic.

I coloured the LOTV image with Distress Inks and Promarkers, adding a liberal bit of Stickles onto the feather boa for some bling! I may add a tiny sparkly gem to the flower centre yet....
Lace and pearls from my stash, flowers a present from my friend, and the sentiment from TLC which I put onto a PC generated ticket shape and then dusted with Distress Ink to co-ordinate with the colours used.
The inside of the card has been decorated to co-ordinate with the front.

Beautiful card, I love all the soft colours you've used. Perfectly pieced together and I admire your skill with tying pretty ribbon. Something I struggle with :) Pxx
