Fancy Anniversary

Good morning!  It's time for a new challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and our challenge to you is to create a project using the theme Fancy or Lacy.  This could be a tough one for some people, depending on your style.  It's definitely a bit out of my comfort zone!  Head on over to the challenge blog to check out the projects from my amazing teamies!

If you haven't already done so, then please join us on the new Paris Inspiration Blog hop.  There are some amazing projects from the DT there and great prizes to be won!

Here's my Fancy and Lacy card:

It's really not that fancy is it?  I told you that it was a bit out of my comfort zone!  At least there is some lace there!  I gave this card to my parents in law for their wedding anniversary which is the day after ours (except theirs is a lot longer!).

The only paper I recognize on there is the pink one from Webster's pages... not sure where the other two are from!  The image is from the new Paris Release and is called Le Baiser Volé  or The Stolen Kiss.  I have coloured it with copics (see details below).  I think the brad is from My Mind's Eye and the gold button is from Crate Paper.  The lace and pearly fancy button are from my local junk shop in Whangarei.  The brown flocked velvet rub on is from Prima and the tag is from Maya Road.  The sentiment stamp is from LOTV.

Here's a close-up of the lovely couple:

And here are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe's Crafts: Celebrations
Lollipop Crafts: Anything Goes
Make My Monday: Victorian Romance

Have a lovely day!

Hi Arabella, gorgeous card as always.

So sorry not been around just lately, had internet connection woes and a sick daughter - then a daughter on holiday, doesn't allow much time for blog hopping!

Hopefully will be back in the swing of things soon, probably just intime for the Easter holidays and more chaos!!

I love that lace and the script print in the background is a nice touch! Those fuzzy embellishment look fun and hopefully not too much of a mess. :D Lovely coloring and I love the browns on her dress! *Hugs
