Cute Daisy May DT

The challenge over at Cute Daisy May this week is Lavender and Lace.
Well they didn't have to tell me twice for this challenge! I love using lace on my cards as my regular visitors have probably noticed lol and purple/lavender is one of my fave colours :)
Here's what I came up with.

I followed the sketch at Create For Fun although my image is oval and not a circle and my image was a bit too big so I had to overlap it on my borders slightly, but apart from that, I followed the sketch as it is, then of course added flowers, I just can't help myself lol.
The papers are Papermania and Bassil Bling. I used my Fiskars scalloped punch to create the borders. The image is of course a Cuet Daisy May, I think this one is from sheet 166, and I coloured her with a mix of Polychromos pencils and oms and Copics.
The flowers are a mix of Primas, little roses from my stash and the bigger roses are from a local florist warehouse as is the pearl sprays. The little star spacer which you can hardly see in this pic because it is so dark (in fact you can't really see the flowers very well at all and they look so much darker here than in real life) are from my local craft shop Holburn Crafts in Aberdeen. Lace is from local haberdashery, I promise I am not sponsored by my local shops lol.
Pearl brads are by papermania and the charm is from The Works. Oh and I used a little Snag Em Stamps clear stamp for stamping around my image.

I hope you will have a rummage in your stash for some pretty lace and join in with this weeks challenge.
Thanks for stopping by.
