One card two challenges


Another day and it's raining here now and there is a storm coming in from the Atlantic which already has weather warnings.  Looks like another wet  and very windy day tomorrow and the weekend.  Brilliant as I am doing a summer fair at the nursing home which Mother lives in.  

Today I bring my card for two challenges,  very unusual for me but I fancied doing both so I made one card for both.
First the Sunday CD challenge this week is Beautiful Ballerinas and the Joanne Sheen Challenge Lavender and Lace.

I made this card using a stamped image and matted it on a glittered lilac card.  I  coloured the image with pro-markers,  I cant remember the name of the stamp.   I used the backing paper from the Joanne Sheen CD - Pamela West collection,   I made a bow with lavender ribbon and added a strip of  real lace into the bow leaving a long ends which I put under the image and left a pieces hanging under.   The flowers were a gift from Janette some time ago and are dark blue/purple and I finished off the card with silver peel off's.

I hope you like my card, 

Until we meet again take care and stay dry.
