Crafty Purple Frog DT Card..........Things Of Beauty

Good morning my lovely friends how are you all today? We had glorious sunshine here this morning & now the heavens have just opened. I've not been to bed all night cus I wasnt very well, dont worry I've had an hour this morn, but I have however caught up on my commenting I think. If I have missed anyone please give me an elbow cus my brain weren't working too well lol.
Anyway I totally forgot all about doing this post.....doh!!! So I will crack on.
Today it is time for Crafty Purple Frog Challenge & this fortnight we would like to see
Things Of Beauty
Now I was late doing my card cus of health but I didnt want to let the girls down so its a lightning quick card so be warned its not my best lol. However the image is the best.......cus when I saw the challenge I had to use my most favourite ever sweet pea image & is of course........

'The Love Is Gone' by Ching-Chou Kuik....this really is my most fave image of all Ching-Chou Kuik. She really is a thing of beauty.

She is of course a decoupage which you can get from the Crafty Purple Frog Store.

I used a framed nestie to cut out the black card frame & then layered her up onto that. I tied some black lace in the corner & down this bottom corner I a handmade crochet flower & a black magnolia rose which is so pretty IRL. I've also added bits of glitter to the image but its not showing up too well.
Please pop on over to my teamies to see their beautiful creations as they are stunning.
Looking forward to seeing your things of beauty this fortnight.

Thank you so much for stopping by love & big squishy hugs to you all mmwah.
Tatty bye for now xoxoxoxox

Wow - your card really is a thing of beauty! The purple roses on the DP look gorgeous and make the purple of the image stand out more. Sorry to hear you've not had much sleep - I went up last night to get my PJs on, laid down for a minute and then next thing I knew, Sam came in my room and it was 7 in the morning!! And I'd left all the lights and the TV on!! Hugs, Marie xxx

WOW!!! I LOVE IT!!!
I love the way ou put it all together...really beautiful Vicki!!!

Grenouille Greetings said...

Firstly, what a lovely card. I always admire your Sweet Peas mind you. You do hair so well and I love that you use fun colour combos.

Now, secondly, on to the more important bit (although commenting on your beautiful creations is also important - don't get me wrong), I am concerned! You have not been well for too long now and it's high time you bopped your doctor on the beak and said "look here you, can't you sort me out!"

Seriously though, Vicky, I am really sorry that you have been feeling so poorly of late and I DO hope that you get better soonest! Big hugs, Lesley
