The journey of creating begins with a spark from deep within. The artist continues on the loom of life and throughout time a beautiful tapestry takes shape and form from the luscious fibres, brilliant gems and precious pearls we encounter along the way....

Hello Everyone... Here is a Caardvarks Entry!

Here is my first entry in the Caardvarks "Lacy Days" challenge for an opportunity to "win" a Guest Designer spot at JustRite Stampers! I love these challenges, they are sooooo fun! As you all may be guessing at, I love to design wedding cards and invitations. I am sticking to my first "love" in this challenge and I have a couple more that I want to enter. In this card I have used the JustRite Loving Thoughts set as the sentiment and cut it out with Spellbinders Scallop Circle - petite. Under the sentiment I used Heidi Swapp glitter flowers in white and placed a K&Co. jewelled brads in each corner. I used cream on cream cardstock and embossed the bottom panel with the Sizzix swirl embossing plate, distressing it with Ranger distressing ink in Vintage Photo. A complimentary light green cardstock and pattern paper was used on the topmost panel to add a soft contrast to the design. A lace ribbon was added between the two panels for a lacy and "old world" feel! Let me know what you think ....
