Lovely Lace at Deep Ocean

Hello everyone how are you all?
I'm really late with this post unfortunately so think of it as a midway reminder lol.

I'm here with my DT creation for Deep Ocean Challenge which this fortnight is.....
......oh so so easy, its a rarity I dont put lace on my creations lol.

The card I'm showing today I made when I made my other LOTV christmas card.
This time however I used NO Christmas Paper at all ;-)
So the paper I've used for is Maja Design 'Enjoying Outdoors' 6x6 pad........the colours in this pad go perfectly with the image. I wanted browns to go with the forest the little girl is in but I also wanted to bring the gorgeous colour of her scarf out......
I machine stitched around the edges as always.
I'm sorry about my photo's just lately I've been taking them on my phone & on the conservatory window sill so they are not great.........time has been escaping me just lately as there is so much going on.
Anyhoo enough boring drivvle lol.
The gorgeous image is one of the new releases from LOTV, this is a Simply Print image called 'Singing Robin' & they have added even more since I got this.....may have to go shopping again lol.
I do have some LOTV stamps that I have coloured, I just need get them on cards.
I cut it out using a postage die & then added a layer of purple underneath to give it a bit of impact on the colour........I think its worked nicely.

I added Scrapiniec & WOC flowers down the bottom right corner & to the top right I aded a sentiment from an old wood block stamp & cut it out using a Magnolia die. I then added a couple of bells & some waxed cord.

I've been neglecting my foamiran lately so I was trying something new......which I will show another time, & I decided to make some poinsettia flowers. I made white ones using a none poinsettia die & I made these Ivory ones using a poinsettia die..........I have a few of these dies so its good to experiment to get the right shape & size you want.
I also made the smaller flowers in a purple foamiran using a Rosy Owl die, the leaves I made using a Whimsy die designed by Bev Rochester.

Sorry for the darkness of this photo lol.
The lace is from my stash & I added 2 layers of cream to add softness to it.
The snowflake border is a Joy Crafts die. As you can see I decorated inside to compliment the front.

Thats it for me, I have lots to do today as we got back from Berwick yesterday as we went away for a long weekend with all the family.....lots of washing lol.
I've also got my granddaughter today as she wants sleep over tonight, she isnt back school until next week as she had an operation the day schools started back & has to be off for 2 weeks.
Here she is just before she went to theatre, she was so brave & not scared at all.......I love this girl!!
Payton just before theatre 5th September 2017.

Well I better get off this laptop & move my body. See you soon lovelies, thanks so much for stopping by & reading my drivvle lol.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
