Sparkles 'Lace It Up' Challenge

Good morning everyone. I hope all is well with everyone.

I have had the great pleasure of being asked if I would like to join the ladies at Sparkles Monthly Challenge and I had to think for all of two seconds before answering so thank you ladies for having me aboard your team. I can't wait to get to know you all.

So this month the challenge is 'Lace It Up' and our sponsor Floppy Latte Designs are offering a prize of $6 worth of digital images and also gave the design team some to play with. As I joined the team late I used an image I already had from Floppy Latte Designs called Lily Circle.

Floppy Lattes Digital Designs ::All Digital All The Time

I cut my image out three times and layered different parts of it up although you can't see it very well in the photo. I coloured it very softly and let the papers pick the colours out. I haven't added a sentiment as yet, it will probably be a mother's day card for one of my step grandchildren to give their mum but I like them to choose which card they want first. 

I used these lovely new papers from Papermania called Spots & Stripes - Pastels and some pretty new lace I got from my local craft shop Let's Create and teamed it with these green gems which have been in my stash forever!

Sorry this photo is rubbish but it is so dark here, I have tried all ways to take it but it just can't pick up the colours.
6" Card Blank - Boyes
Card Stock - Bazzill
Medium - Letraset
Dies - Spellbinders Classic & Scalloped Circles

 Promarkers & Flexmarkers Used:-
