Miracle of Love.....

Hi Susan here....

Monday not only starts the beginning of another week but it is the day for some fun over at Lexi's Creations. A new challenge has begun today and the theme is 'Picture Perfect', all that means is we want to see a 'photo' on your creations.....the full details of the challenge and some inspiration from the design team take a trip to Lexi's Creations. The fabulous 'Letraset' is our sponsor for this challenge and the winner will receive some great Promarkers from them.

For my card, my backing papers are from a Joanna Sheen CD called 'Fashion Boutique', I wanted to keep to a neutral cream and brown colour theme, I love this colour theme its vintage and gentle. I have mat and layered onto brown card throughout and all edges have been distressed. The pearls are from our local market.

As you can tell I have cheated a little here and used a 'photo' from a Joanna Sheen CD  called 'Fashion Boutique', but it was what I wanted for my colour theme, and the image is beautiful and how I imagine my 'Granny' or 'Great Granny' to have looked in her 'Sunday Best'. I did however print it out onto a mat photo paper!!!!! haha!

This is one of the beautiful sentiments from Lexi, it is called 'Miracle of Love', pop over to Fairy Dust Crafts to see all the designs available, especially now that the Brand New Craft Store is stocked and open for business.

My flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and I chose shades of cream to match my theme.

My ribbon is from our local market, the pin I added extra beads to the stem and the feather from my stash just finished it for me.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.
Love Susan
