Happy 10th Birthday LOTV

Good morning my lovelies & it is such a beautiful morning up here by the sea. I've got one lot of washing pegged out & the bedding in the washer to be pegged out once its done.
Sorry I've been MIA, been rather busy. I've had cards made but then its took me til now to take pics lol.

The card I'm showing today I made specifically for LOTV & also their monthly challenge as they are celebrating 10 years...........
HAPPY BIRTHDAY LOTV, here's to another 10 years.

Now I brought the Annabel stamps as soon as they were released, within seconds actually lol & they arrived the next day & I even colour one up straight away. Sadly it took a while for her to get on a card, then when I saw the new challenge I made the card but then kept forgetting to take pics & blog it  :0( I know I'm not right in the head lol.
I made the card into my favourite style, shabby chic. The pad is an older Prima pad called 'Pixie Glen' I absolutely lurve the lush soft colours in this pad. I have machine stitched the papers & added gesso here & there.

The flowers are all WOC. I've added 2 layers of lace, the bottom pale pink one is from my stash & top one is 'Estee' 40mm from LLC, need more of this lace its lush. The metal corner is from my stash & I painted it with white gesso.

The clip is Tim Holtz & I added some scrap lace through the hole & added white gesso. The tag & postage thingies are from the Prima pad, I gave them a distressing & added gesso. The numbers are from my stash.

The stamp is called 'Annabel Pedal Power' I love these so much. I coloured the image with copics but kept it light so it went with the card, kept shading minimal as well.

The 'Sentiment Tags' are also LOTV. As always the inside is decorated to compliment the front. The leaves under the flowers are Magnolia 'Sprawling Ferns'.
I think that is it.

Its also Ribbon Girl LOTV challenge this week so I'm also putting my card there.

Thank you so much for stopping by, big hugs to you all.
Tatty bye & take care

I haven't given in to the temptation to get some of the new stamps yet but my willpower will not last long if you keep showing me such gorgeous cards!
Your colouring is so beautiful and the soft pink and blue works perfectly together.
I don't know how you manage to combine all those lush embellies and still have the card look not overdone - I adore how you do that :)
Big hugs, Kat xx
