Crafts & Me DT Card - Pretty In Lace

Hello my lovelies how are you all today? 
Well it is of course Wednesday which means a new challenge over at Crafts & Me & of course its the Rockin' Rubbah Girlies turn to set the challenge. This week your hostess is moi........yay ickle old me & I decided to choose something I lurve to use on my creations so the theme this week isssssssssss....
You gotta love lace havn't you, there are just so many gorgeous ones out there. You dont want to know how long it takes me just to choose the one I will use........for this card I changed my mind 3 times lol.
For my card this week I've used my very 1st Crafts & Me stamp & its still my absolute favourite stamp!!
I have used 'Butterfly Keeper' by the fabulous Hannah Lynn who is one of my favourite artists. Isn't she so beautiful, I lurve her hair.

The lace & ric-rac is from my stash, I think tho the ric-rac I brought from Bunny Zoes prob about a year ago lol.........yeah I forget about things lol.

Of course the stamp is exclusive to Crafts & Me Store. She is coloured with Copics & I added glossy accents & a sprinkling of glitter while it was wet to give it sparkle & dimension, it looks gorgeous IRL.
Copics used are....
E13 E21 E00 E000 R20 R11
R85 R83 R81 RV10
E29 E25 E23 & I cant remember what I used on the butterflies. I also added a small pearl to her armband thingy.

Paper is Memory Box 'Gossamer' & I edged it with Vintage Photo distress ink & matted onto brown card. The top paper with the script on is Marianne Design 'Roses Are Red' which I love but think they are getting discontinued :0( The card it is matted on I cut the edge of it with a Memory Box Die as I thought it was perfect being butterflies. I added 2 gorgeous Prima Flowers, a corner die & punched out some small butterflies & added pearls to them.

I'm actually happy with the way this card turned out, which doesn't happen very often & its in one of my fave colour themes, pink & brown. Pop on over to see my fabulous teamies creations they are stunner, each of them.

Thank you sooooooooo much for stopping by & thank you for your kind messages about Natalie. She is still poorly bless her but she has extra cuggles to help her feel better & we are still staying in the living room with her. No sooner she gets wee bit better she goes more poorly again :0(
