'Pearls & Lace'
The prize for this challenge is this adorable Mimi stamp:
Generously donated by ex-PBSC DT member Carole.
I've used one of the stamps from the 'Touch of Whimsy' set that I received recently as part of my prize in the Penny Black category of the Cardmaker of the Year competition on my card...I coloured it using watercolour pencils to match the blues & greens of the BasicGrey 'Marjolaine' papers. I distressed the edges a littel...then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. I used lace (from Hobbycraft) to form a scalloped border along the central strip...and added some blue adhesive pearls in a couple of the corners. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Cupcakes' set by Hero Arts...and I dissected a few flowers (Wild Orchid Crafts) so that I could place the different coloured petals behind it.
