A visit to Venice ......

Perfect crafting day as it's alternating between heavy rain, sleet, snow and bright sunshine!

I have made this card for someone going to Venice in the next few days!  I used Maja Vintage Summer Basics 6x6 Pad with a digital image of Venice from years gone by.  Venice is lovely place to visit at any time of year and I hope to go later in the summer

The left side of the card was shaped with a die and I added some Laila 17mm white vintage style lace, 6mm white flatback pearl trim, ivory and pale pink large rosebuds, ivory hip rosebuds, white lily and aqua 30mm wild roses.  I also included a bronze sea-horse peeping out from the flowers.

The inside of the card was decorated with more Maja papers from the same pad and the sentiment is computer generated

I will enter this card into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge ; 'show us your metal' which in my case is the little bronze sea horse

thanks for visiting and see you soon

As someone who totally blows at making anything that requires more than one fold, this rocked my socks off! It's so soft and vintagey and full of lovely layers. Totally signed up to be your newest follower (and would love it if you came for a visit, too!)
