Lace & Memories

Hello, another 8x8 card from me ..... I love working on this size at the moment and find my cards easier to make.  This card has been specially made for two challenges:-


and

Bird is the Word - "Memory / Memories"


I have used Creative Expressions Seamstress plate of stamps.  Papers used are from K&C Ancestry paper pad.

I have used a selection of distress inks; Walnut Stain, Peeled Paint and Tea Dye.

The gold thread is from a piece of twisted cord which I took apart and added to the stamped cotton bobbins.  Pins added.  The stamped buttons are from the stamp plate and then cut out individually to frame the centre.

Photo above showing the word "Memories" and the lace tucked behind the cotton reels.
Lace added along the bottom of the card and a knotted chiffon ribbon was placed down the side.

Thank you for taking the time to comment and try to check out the above challenges, you'll love them - would love to know what you think!  Suzanne ~x~

Gorgeous card Suz. I really love that stamp set and love what you've done with it too. All the little details and the ruffled lace look beautiful.
I'm with you on the 8 x 8 size too as sometimes you need more room for all the bits you want to add.
Thanks for joining in with the FSC ribbon & lace challenge too and hope to see you again.
Hugs, Fliss xx
