Lace and Pearls

Hi everyone,

it's tuesday again and you know what that means, right? Another fun challenge over at the digital tuesday challenge blog! The lovely Lora is our hostess this week and she wants to see us use Lace and Pearls. I loved this challenge, as I love the look of lace and pearls.


I thought the adorable Emma with butterfly from Fred She Said was perfect for the challenge. Her dress was paper pieced. Instead of real lace I ended up using my lace border punch, because I didn't have the right lace at home. I definitley will get some more as soon as I see some at the store.

The papers are all by Stampin Up and the flowers are also from Fred She Said. I printed them on SU pomegranate paper, cut them out and sponged the edges using whisper white craft ink to soften them a little bit. Leaves are made with a sizzix die from SU.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog today, maybe you'll find some time to join in the challenge this week. Tracey, the owner of Fred She Said is giving away a $10 gift certificate to her store to one lucky winner.

Have a wonderful day,

Ellie.
