Graceful Chandelier

Hello friends,

Thank you for stopping by today, I always appreciate your visits so much.

Two weeks just flew and we have a new challenge starting today at Sugar Creek Hollow. This fortnight the theme is “Romance” and you have to use ribbon on your creation. Please remember that your creation must be in the vintage or shabby chic style. There is also  a lovely prize for the random winner of this challenge. The Really Reasonable Ribbon   shop sponsors a  $15 gift certificate to their store – such a fantastic prize.

My card is in a Victorian shabby chic style with a lovely image from Janet K Design. I added a chandelier die cut embellished with gemstones, two vintage corners and a cherub on a little lace heart to accentuate the Victorian feel of the image. I made the pink drape with May Arts wrinkled ribbon which you can buy from Really Reasonable Ribbon online store. I love this ribbon as it is much cheaper than silk ribbon, has a lovely shine and shapes very well. Hope you can join the Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge this time with a romantic creation.

The cherub, lace heart and flowers

Regards from South Africa,

Amelia

    Hi, Amelia.
    Hierdie romantiese kaartjie met sy pragtige prentjie maak my nou lus om met ‘n Barbara Cartland boek in die hand op te krul op die rusbank!! Ek sou so perfek in daai tyd kon gepas het met sy koetse en kastele en natuurlik daai ongelooflike rokke en die pruike en die galante prinse!!! Alles aan jou kaartjie spel romanse en al die detail is so perfek gedoen! Baie dankie vir hierdie reis na daai ongelooflike tye (sou dit nie wonderlik gewees het as dit vandag nog so kon wees nie!!).
    Baie groete!
