Lavender and Lace

I'm sponsoring the Allsorts challenge with a prize of 4 of my digi images this week and this is my Guest DT card. The theme is "Lavender and Lace"
I've just got some of the new Tonic Studios Simplicity Geared punches and couldn't wait to try them out. This one is Daisy Border. The digi I've used is Pincushion and Thread from A Passion for Stamps and I coloured it with Promarkers. I added some gems to the pin heads.I used the Argyle Cuttlebug embossing folder because I thought it matched well with the stitching effect.
For an extra little lacy effect I cut a little "corner" from the same border punch and added some glitter glue.

As usual, when I get new punches, I have punched out lots of each shape tp play around with and I have a folder for keeping the ideas in. I'll be using some of these in my next cards.

Today is the final day for entering my Promarker giveaway as I'm picking a winner tonight.
Also, as this is a scheduled post I can only hope that I manage to get to the Craft Fair in the King's Hall in Belfast today. My mother has been ill again and is in hospital (in Belfast) so I have other priorities but I still hope I can fit a short visit in as I have already bought my ticket.

  4. Ruth this card is really beautiful, you really are an amazing artist. The image is stunning and I love the lavender colour. Hope your Mammy is doing well and you get to pop your head into the Fair today. I was there yesterday and was a wee bit disappointed as there didnt seem to be as many stalls as the last time and it was mostly beads and fabric......didnt stop me spending my money though!! But it was at one stall only. Hope you got to go for a bit today. Lee x
