Sweet Pea Stampers - Lace and Pearls

Hiya folks!

Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was uneventful, nice and peaceful for a couple of hours on Sunday as hubby took the kids to the cinema.

My card today is my DT piece for Sweet Pea Stampers, and our theme this week is 'Lace and Pearls'. I have decided to keep mine simple this time, no extra flowers and froo-froo! (ish)

I used Ching-Chou Kuik's 'Thousand Years Waiting' from Sweet Pea Stamps for my image today, coloured with the usual watercolour pencils with a few spots of stickles.

My papers are by Little Scrap Garden. I used a green spotty one for the frame, and a pink tiny spotted one behind the image with lace on top. The spotty theme was done for the Pixie Dust challenge of 'polka dots' this week. I have used a sketch from Sketch and Stash for my layout:

I added some big pearly brads either side of the image, with smaller sticky pearls in the scalloped area on the same panel. This was made with a Martha Stewart border punch. I have also added some little white spots round the edge of the card as it was looking very dull there. My colour theme of 'pink and green' fits the theme at Penny's Challenges this week.

Just a little note for you folks:
Sweet Pea Stampers will be going to a fortnightly format from September, so you ladies can have even more time to cook up some yummies!! See you there folks!
