LOTV Guest Designer Card

Hello everyone I'm here today with my last card for LOTV as their Guest Designer for August, boo hoo :0( I have to say I'm so proud, honoured & extremely thankful that I got chosen to be a Guest designer & totally loved it. Thank you soooooooo much LOTV for having me. Ok as I'm running late I will make this a quickie post.
Ok so onto my last card & again I've used James Bear..........this is my favourite James stamp :0)
I've used Maja Design papers, inked the edges & machine stitched. 
The top layer I cut into a flag shape to add some interest & also stamped 'Love You' with LOTV 'Handwritten Phrases' sentiment stamp.


I decorated inside to compliment the front, again with the flag shape. A space will be added to write a personal message on.

I've added gorgeous lace & tulle to the side. The sentiment is LOTV 'Pretty Grunge Relations' & I added a couple of small pearls to it.

The fabulous stamp is 'James Umbrella' & I coloured him with distress markers & added pearl dots using a pearl pen. I also added glossy accents to the puddle but you cant see it in the pic :0(
The fences are 'Lovely Fence' from Magnolia.

The 'Sister' charm is from my stash. The leaves are Magnolia 'Sprawling Ferns'.
All of the flowers, the lace, the tulle & the Maja Design papers are all from Live & Love Crafts, who have a relaunch sale on til midnight tonight if you want to go shopping for the most beautiful shabby chic & vintage products there is.

Ok thats it from me hope you have enjoyed my cards for LOTV, I certainly enjoyed making them.
Thank you sooooooooooo much for stopping by.

Huge hugs to all mmwah

Love this image too. Your colouring of him is fantastic, it really looks like a right old rainstorm! The pink umbrella is a great touch, your layout and flowers look fabulous. Sad that your stint at LOTV is over.
Hope everything is ok with you and the family. Debra x
