Sparkles Forum Challenge #16 Elegance & Lace

Morning all

The weather is horrible here at the moment... raining  :( hope it clears up this afternoon as I am meant to be going to a fun day :) fingers crossed eh.

This fortnight's challenge over at Sparkles Forum Challenge is Elegant & Lace. I thoroughly enjoyed this theme! My DT work is below:

I decided to do something different than the usual card. This is a cathedral type arch. I decorated the inside using Lawrence Llewelyn Bowen papers, an image by Leanne Ellis coloured with pro markers and added a bit of shimmer, and also added a few gems.

This is the outside... decorated again with Lawrence papers and embroidered brads, with a bit of lace from my stash. (it looks a bit wonky here but its the photo - had trouble getting the pic straight and the doors closed lol)

Here is a close up of the image.... 

The sponsor this week is Crafty Emma 
She has offered up this lovely rubber stamp set for the winner

Thats it from me for now. Thinking *positive sunny thoughts* for this afternoon :)
Thanks for stopping by xxx
