Fun with Lace!

Today I want to share a card that I made using some fabulous new Stampin' Up products.

I started by inking a card front using Pink Pirouette ink.  I then used the En Francais stamp and stamped the back ground in the same coloured ink.

I stamped the swirl from Everything Eleanor using Chocolate Chip ink.

The Doily, flowers, button and lace are all part of the new Artisan kit - which could have easily been designed especially for me - I love this kit!!

The doily was inked using Pink Pirouette and edges using Chocolate Chip.

The quote is from 'The Pursuit Of Happiness' stamp set.  As soon as I saw this set I HAD to have it!!  I love the film of the same name (as well as the yummy Will Smith who stars in it).  Every time I watch the film I end up crying uncontrollably throughout it - such a lovely, touching movie...  Anyway - back to the card....  I adore this quote - something I have to tell myself now and then.

I attached the doily to the card blank.

I adhered some lace using strong tape at each end.  I cut the stems from the flowers and attached them to the right hand side.  I threaded some bakers twine through a button and attached to finish.

I made this card at 3 a.m while I was unwell and unable to sleep - when I saw it again the next day I was delighted - the photo does not do it justice!!

Thanks for looking...
