The challenge at Papertake Weekly this week is 'diecuts' I made a pink Christmas card and rather like the effect :-) makes a change from traditional colours. I used Pion Silent Night papers and the image is from that set also. All edges were distressed with Ranger gathered twigs ink. I die cut the intricate frame using some non-stick baking parchment to make sure it didn't stick and it cut perfectly. I also cut a Lil Inkers snowflake to which I added a 22mm diamante snowflake for some glitzy sparkliness - I love pink but I love sparkle even more!!
I added gorgeous 'Blanche' embroidered tulle lace, pink shabby pleated ribbon topped with 6mm white flat back pearl string. I popped on a few 3mm pink pearls from the 3mm sugar and spice set and added lots of Stardust Stickles to the image.
My flower arrangement includes 30mm wild rose, pink/pink berries, white pretty blossom, white beaded twirl and 10mm pale pink open rose.
I hope you will be able to join us over at Papertake Weekly - great inspiration from my very talented teamies and there's a £10 voucher towards a spending spree at Ribbon Girl for the winner!
see you soon, Mary xx
