Anything Goes Challenge - Relax with Lavender and Lace

Good Morning Blogging Friends,
Today is a new challenge for Anything Goes Challenge Blog and this week our challenge is Relax with Lavender and Lace, such an easy challenge for me as my favourite colour is purple and I love lace and ribbons on my cards.  I made a card some time ago for a lovely lady who was 75 and I thought she would appreciate this type rather than my usual image card. 


I made an easel card with a digital frame I downloaded and cut the center out, I then put acetate over the cut out.  The next step was a smaller frame for the back and an even smaller frame for the sentiment, I then attached them together with pearl brads so the front panel curved... did that make sense...   I am definately going to do this again with an image at the back next time and using my new Grand Nesties will make it super easy. 


I think this view shows the curve of the front panel better, also I made one of my pins and a huge purple bow.


This view shows the bottom of the easel card with flowers, lace and pearls, drop over to The Craft Den, as they have a great selection of flower, brads, lace and pearls. 


I had bought ages ago some little blank cameos from eBay and I fortunately came across them and thought they were ideal for poping a picture of Margaret on, I cover the picture with more acetate which was secured with Glossy Accents.  Unfortunately in the tip I call my craft room I can no longer find them.  I really need to get some time to sort it all out...

Hope you like my card, please drop over to Anything Goes Challenge blog and see the fantastic creations from my other lovely team mates. 

I would


Hugs
