Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar Challenge DT - Make it Lacey

Well, it was certainly Friday the 13th alright wasn't it LOL - no blogger all day, no scheduled post and then it goes and publishes without any text!! and my post from yesterday has vanished, hope it reappears when they sort things through! Anyway, at long last I can share my card with you for this week's Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge!! Our theme this week is Make it Lacey, so you can use lace, lacey dies, doileys and lacey punches! My Brother and his Fiancee just moved into a new house and this is the New Home card I made for them. The papers are by Prima.

I coloured Edwin's Town with copics and then cut out the houses individually as the image was too large in a mat - there was no paper left LOL! I coloured two of the houses in black and white and then one in colour to represent "their" new house in a street of other houses. I have added glossy accents to the windows and stickles to the coloured house.

The doiley is by Martha Stewart and I added some gel stickers from my stash to spell "new" and a metal word tag for "home". The gingham ribbon is from my stash.

The gorgeous aida hydrangeas are by Prima and I added some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts too along with a key charm and button twine from Whiff of Joy.

I added some butterflies punched with Martha Stewart punches and some gorgeous peach lace from my stash.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge! Pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the teams stunning cards! Thanks for looking! x
