There is a new challenge starting today at
The theme is...

Here is my inspiration card for the challenge...
Here is what I used to make my card....
Digital stamp by: The East Wind
Digi image colored with Marco Raffine Colored Pencils.
The Paper Studio 4.5"x6.5" 'Mirabelle'
Core'dinations ColorCore Cardstock 'Black Magic'
Prima Marketing Comfort Craft Distressing Tool
Lace and Flowers from my dear friend Mary.
Tattered Lace Dies
Tim Holtz Distressed Ink 'Mustard'
Zots Glue Dots
White cardstock paper and flatback pearls are from my stash.

Using white paper to make the card, I glued the patterned
paper in the center. After cutting the ColorCore cardstock, to
where it fits in the corners, I used the distressing tool around
each side and on the top, so that the color underneath shows through.
Then glued both in place. I then cut a piece of lace and glued it
across the bottom of the card. My dear hubby added distressed ink
on the sides of the image. After it was dry, I added glue dots to
the back of the image and added it onto the card. Then glued the
stems and flowers next to the image and glued three pearls above
the image.
Thanks to my dear husband, as he is the photographer for all my cards. :)

And that's my DT card.
I hope you like it and it will give you some inspiration.

Happy Crafting,
Sherry x
