MMM - Challenge 8

Wow - we are on challenge no. 8 this week and the challenge is - LACE & PEARLS. We are still vintage style but then you knew that didn't you!
Here is my card for the DT
For my card I have used some of Stampin' Up's Vintage Springtime DSP. I have layered it up with some Regal Rose and Very Vanilla card stock. The stamps I have used are from the Baby Blossoms set and they are stamped in Regal Rose, Rose Red and Always Artichoke inks. The lace border is made with lace sent to me a while ago by my fellow DT - Cath and has a little piece of pink organza ribbon woven through it. A pearl bead has also been threaded on in the middle. I really must apologise for the pearls in the centers of my flowers - it took me ages riffling around in my gem box only to realise that I had run out of sticky pearls so I raided some past projects and stole some! The flash on my camera though has picked up that they don't really match - doh!
It would be really great to see you over on the Make My Monday challenge blog - here and to see what you come up with. Bye for now - Jacqueline xx.

  1. This is so pretty Jacqueline. Love the colours and the lovely roses. The stripy paper looks beautiful with the lace trim and reminds me of Georgian wallpaper.

  2. I love the flowers with this striped paper and the lace and ribbon trim is just gorgeous! I wouldn't have noticed about the pearls if you hadn't mentioned it! Vx

  3. Pretty card and I like the two-step stamps (I have the larger roses which I use often).

  5. This is so pretty, I love the colours. I can remember cards like this when I was younger, so spot on with the vintage. Caz
