Flowers and paper lace!

Good evening all! I hope your week is going well!

Here's another Thank you card that I made for the tea ladies and behind-the-scenes helpers at the Space Academy Church Holiday club last week. It's inspired by the work of Christina Griffiths she not only has a blog but a website called Card Making Magic which is a mine of fascinating information!

The die-cuts are in white pearlised card, and are made with Spellbinders Enchanted Labels 28 and the trellis is by Spellbinders for 'Our Daily Bread.' I saw the trellis on Christina's blog and fell in love!

The dark blue backing card is a snippet, and the middle patterned section is from stash, probably from a magazine. The decoupaged flowers are from a die-cut sheet that I found while tidying, but I don't know its origin. The tiny butterflies are made with a Woodware punch, using a snippet of purple pearlised paper.

Here's a side view to show the layering:

The tea-ladies, especially, are of an age to prefer flowers and lace rather than spaceships!!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

This is so elegant. Love those dies (recently got 28, but not used it yet. Thanks for showing me a great inspiration!). Liked the way you have yet another interesting layout with the lattice die over the labels one...beautiful layering effect. The blue & white is always a beautiful color combo. Thanks for the link provided, I'll be checking that one out, as soon as I get round for my catch up visits! TFS & Hugs
