Finished At Last

Hello, hope you are all well and to those of you in the UK I hope you're not too frozen.

Well as the title of this post suggests I have finally finished the card I was working on yesterday. I always admire the ability of those who can make 'fussy' cards as I call them as I can never seem to master the art of lace, ribbon and flowers... but after 2 days and a few 'botherations' and 'oh, sugar lumps' I have made a card which I am quite pleased with. Okay so it's not up there with the real 'frilly and fussy' but it does have a lace frill and flowers. The sentiment on the tag is handwritten in gold gel pen and the paper above the lace has been cut with a heart border punch but it doesn't show up too well in the photo.

Here's what I used
Image - Sugar Nellie 'Rosie' which is coloured with Promarkers and Sakura glitter pen
Papers - all from My Mind's Eye 'Lost & Found Two'
Dies - Marianne Creatables LR0180 doiley, LR0156 leaves, LR0254 tag, Marianne Craftables CR1211
Punches - Dovecraft heart border, Dovecraft daisy, (unknown brand) butterfly
Stash - lace, ribbon, pearls, gem, roses

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Charisma Cardz challenge 'Punch It - use 2 or more punches'
Paper Creator's Crafts challenge 'Love Is All Around'
Winter Wonderland challenge 'Vintage'
The Ribbon Girl challenge 'Pink and Ivory'
The Sketchy challenge 'Karen's Sketch'

Everybody-Art challenge '3 Papers, 3 Flowers, 3 Punches'
Bearly Mine challenge 'Tic Tac Toe' (flowers, pearls, ribbon. doiley)
