A forgotten card

Hello friends,
Due to our planed move I have been doing a lot of cleaning out. I found a number of recently made cards that I haven't yet shown here on  my blog, so in the next few weeks I will be showing these in betweeen my DT cards. Time is just in such short supply now, that I am not getting many new cards made except for DT work and one class per month, so I was pleased to find a few 'new' ones.

This is a card made for my class last month, which I did enjoy doing, and wanted to use my new Craftable bow die. It worked so well on this card

Card recipe:

Paper -  Pretty Paper Bloc - French roses Marianne Design

Diecuts - Marianne design - Craftables and Creatables

Picture - Vintage sheet, not sure whose it is

Sentiment  - Joycrafts

Lace, pearls from my stash

One of the alternatives was to make your own background paper, so this was the sample I made.

Card Recipe:

I used all the same dies as above, but stamped our own paper using a
'Cover a card' stamp of Impression Obsession and Dusty Concord Distress stamppad, inking all edges with Vintage Photo.

Will be entering a few challenges:
Simon Says challenge...Anything goes
Fan-Tastic Tuesday challenge #41...Anything goes
Just Inspirational challenge...Anything goes
Whimsy Stamps challenge #72...Tic-tac-toe (Top right to bottom left), Pearls, diecut,ribbon
Ladybug Crafts challenge ...Anything goes
Through the Craftroom Door...Anything goes
Bloggers challenge...Friendship
Crafty Catz challenge #237...Anything goes
Sister Act Card challenge #63...Anything goes
613 Avenue Create...Anything goes with optional pink
One Stitch at a time #218...Anything goes
Scribble and Scrap challenge #21...Anything goes

Wishing you all a great weekend. I heard we are in for some cold weather this weekend and maybe a bit of rain...very unusual, so will wait and see what it will be like. I have another class tomorrow, so will possibly share some cards in the next week or two.

Take care, love Ursula
