A Touch of Elegance….
with a little lace and pearls
is the latest challenge at Vintage Stamping Challenges.
With Mother’s Day coming up in this part of the world 
I thought I would take the opportunity to make mum’s card with this challenge.
She is from a time when every Saturday night everyone followed the dance hall circuit.

I think this Flonz Image is perfect for her.

This is my first go at a twisted easel card…

The background papers are a freebie from Astrid’s Artistic Efforts.
which I have just added a little ink and stamping to.

 The top part of the card is suppose to be ultra femine…
so heaps of lace and swirls and pearls
and of course ~ the colour purple
(I heard somewhere once that older people loooove purple)

The really wanted to create a cascading effect from the top card through to the bottom front corner.
Keeping the theme flowing through.
I did grunge up the flowers a little with some gesso
(I just couldn’t resist it)
and it takes off that “just bought” look.
And heaps of hearts because I love my mum.
(does that make up for calling her old??? lol)
Flonz has a generous $20 prize for one lucky entrant
which can be spent on a huge range of goodies from his on-line store.
And they are cheap…so you can get heaps of them!
The Design Team have once again come up with some
outstanding examples of how to showcase these stamps…
so please be inspired
