Lothian Crafts Online

Hi Folks
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  It is pouring it down with rain at the moment and has been all day so a perfect day for crafting.

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Lothian Crafts Online.  Our theme for this challenge is:
Birthday for a female
To enter the challenge you must use dies as part of your creation.
The winner will receive a fab £10 voucher to spend at Lothian Crafts Online.

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

I used a Marianne die (Lady Elegant) for the main image and cut it out of coredinations cardstock.   This was then mounted onto another die (double frame) and then onto a doily.  I did ink round the edges with distress ink and added some pearls from The Hobby House.  The background papers were in my snippets box.  The purple paper was plain but I used a stamp from Imagination Crafts and some mica powders to add the flourishes.  For embellishements I used ribbon, lace, flowers from The Hobby House, butterflies and a sentiment.  

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your fab creations.  Just pop over to Lothian Crafts Online to enter.
