A Touch of Lace....

And a lot of pink again! This is a card I made for my Mum. The main stamped image is a wooden rubber stampede stamp which I picked up from ebay, love scouring ebay for unusual stamps. The background paper is by prima and the torn paper is one I made used a hero arts newsprint stamp and the rose is an Iron Orchid designs stamp. I used water colours and distress inks to colour these. The square lace is from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Hope your enjoying the lovely weather, it's gorgeous today.

Thank you to everyone who has left such kind & lovely comments and Hiya to all my new followers. I do try to visit your blogs and leave comments, but I seem to be on a go slow ATM, nothing unusual there though, never seems to be enough hours in the day for me LOL.

Have a great weekend, hopefully we will get a bit more Spring weather.

Happy Crafting XX

Hi Paula, your card is stunning, that lace is to die for. I think the newsprint stamp is one of the most versatile stamp I have, it seems to go with most things. Your Mum will love this card. Regards, Anne Rx
