2 or 4 legs .......

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the title of this weeks Papertake Weekly Challenge - two or four legs  -  well, I pondered for ages until I had a look through my little used stash of special Pion papers which I keep in a separate box  - I finally decided on this lovely image which has two (human) and four (doggy) legs - just the ticket!

I die cut around the image then distressed with Gathered Twigs distress ink.  I added some champagne 32mm pure silk ribbon - it ties the most beautiful bows - and added a couple of the new Princess Pearl & Diamante pins.

My flower arrangement includes a brown 30mm wild rose, cream 20mm open rose, Kort & Godt ivory beaded berries, a cream sweetheart blossom and some ivory beaded gypsophalia
The guipure lace trim is 38mm ivory 'Grace' 

Flowers, pins, ribbon, lace and Stardust Stickles are all from

I decorated a box to go with the card (it's not Pion paper), added some 16mm satin ribbon to tone with the colour of the silk and some gold colour washi tape which I pinched off Andrea :-)

I hope you can join us for this weeks challenge - the Papertake Weekly design team have come up with some marvellous cards to inspire you so please pop over for a look!
see you soon, Mary x
