Challenges


Well I worked a bit on some challenges today. This card is for Totally Papercrafts weekly challenge in which the Theme is mothers day or special lady and Basic Greys Fortnight challenge which was to use a sketch below as inspiration. Being my mother is not with us anymore I decided to make this card with a very special friend in mind.
She has been going through some tough times and I think It will be nice to send to her. For the card I used Basic grey porcelain and wisteria papers, Bazzill cardstock, Setiment stamp from Inkadinkadoo and flower stamp from close to my heart. the lace was from my current stash. Of course I just had to spend hours trying to upload my image as I was having computer issues. Gotta love technology and to think I used to work with it.
This was the photo inspiration for Basic Greys challenge. I liked the softness of it so I shredded the edges on my card a bit and added some faux stitching. I think the lace also added a soft touch.
thanks for peeking! As always your comments are greatly appreciated. have a good night all! Angela
