What a damp miserable day. I really do hope that the last two weeks were not summer!
At Make My Monday we are starting a new set of themes for the month, and they are all June related. So as pearls are the birth stone for the month we want to see Birthday Cards with Pearls. You can check out the themes for the month here. Our fab leader is the hostess for June, and as it is also her birthday on June 10, this is a very appropriate theme for this week. Happy Birthday Jacqueline!
Please pop across to the challenge, there are some lovely inspirational samples.
I have gone for a fairly simple card. I have taken some Kraft card and used a Hero Arts stamp with Adirondak ink in Expresso. I wanted the background to be slightly patchy so left inked fairly lightly in some areas of the stamp. The gingham strip across the bottom is a B Line stamp, and to this I have added some lace. The flowers are butterfly are both from a Hero Arts/Sizzix set, an again have been stamped in the Expresso ink. The sentiment is Stampin Up.
I should say that my inspiration for this came from something I saw on Kath Stewart's blog - she does some amazing work which I have constantly admired.
I am entering this in to the following challenges:
The Ribbon Girl - Use Ribbon Or Lace
