Carpe Diem

tisdag 21 februari 2012

Hi everyone! Welcome to my blog today.
Today it will be a short post. I made a card where I include using my grandmother's crochet lace.Unfortunately, she lives no longer.

I used papers from Melissa Frances and Pion Design - Minnenas Atelje.
Bird stamp from Crafty Secrets which I colored with Copics, and over it I stamped the sentiment from Reprint.

I stamped the Crafty Individuals thread spool, cut it out and spun a little embroidery yarn around it.
The flower I made of fabric and Tim Holtz tissue tape and in the center I placed a brad and a little fluffy band.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!
Hugs, Birgit

Challenges for this card:
