PaperPlay Challenges - Lace, Ribbon & Flowers

Hi!! It's an AWFUL day out there today. I am spending the afternoon crafting, not putting one foot outside the door for fear of being blown away!! Hubster has been delegated the school runs :D 

I made this card & paper cone set for PaperPlay Challenges - Lace, Ribbon & Flowers, Whiff of Joy Challenges  -  Christmas card, Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes and Basic Grey Challenges which is a sketch by the very lovely Heather.


I just adore this sweet WOJ image and love how versatile it is - I knew it would be perfect for a Mother/Daughter Christmas card. I coloured it using Copic sketch markers, cut it out with Labels 14 Nesties and sponged the background with distress ink.

My papers are BG Jovial - I am LOVING them!! I've distessed them with Antique Linen ink. The border work is done using Martha Stewart's deep edge trellis punch. I'm not 100% certain but I *think* the lace is from Prima. I bought the charm and flower centres from The Hobby House at the NEC :D

Then I made a paper cone to using the BG Jovial, ribbon & lace and filled it with candies. It has already been claimed by a certain 4yr old diva... 

... and I just know that a certain 6yr old little man is going to hissy fit until I make him one also, LOL!! 

Thanks for popping in!! Don't forget to leave my PaperPlay teamies a little love and be sure to read the post this week - we are having a DT call!
