Lothian Crafts Online Challenge

Hi Folks
The eagle eyed among you may have noticed that a new badge appeared in my sidebar a couple of weeks ago.  I was delighted to be asked to be on the design team for Lothian Crafts Online challenge blog.  We will be doing a monthly challenge and the first challenge starts today.

Now the theme for this challenge is everyone's favourite
Anything goes but must use dies

Here is my inspiration project using dies available from Lothian Crafts Online.

This is a wedding card that I was asked to make.  Love it when I can combine a request with a DT card.  I used the Marianne Creatable die - Anja Large Oval for the central image.  The backing was cut out of purple card and I then used cream card for the lacy overlay.  The little birds were on a stamp that I have.  The backing card is cream and I have stamped with my Inkadinkado flourish stamp using distress ink.  Other items used were peel offs, lace, ribbon, flowers and Marianne Creatable die cut butterflies.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to Lothian Crafts Online to upload your entry.  You can also check out the other design team projects.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
The Paper Shelter - Lace and pearls
Divas By Design - Lovely lace
CRAFT - Well done/Congratulations
Cute Card Thursday - Things with wings
Brown Sugar - Wedding
Totally Gorjuss - Texture
Emmas Cards - Birds
