Dressed Up in Lace

Hello friends,

Hope you are all well and enjoying your day. Time for another challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow today – time just flies. I decided to make a pink shabby Christmas card with a lace tree, a few roses and pearls for the challenge. The challenge theme is one of my favourites – we want to see the distress technique. Your project must be made in a vintage, shabby chic or primitive inspired style. Hope you will hop over and share your creation with us at the Sugar Creek Hollow Distressing Challenge this week. Thank you to the following challenge blogs I entered and their design teams, your hard work is much appreciated.

Challenges:

    Stunning Amelia!! I love the way you’ve got around the problem of Christmas cards always being about snow – doesn’t quite gel with our 40 degree summer Christmases. Looking forward to some more for this year.
