Lace and Pearls–Challenge 24

I can’t believe that we are already at week 24 in the Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge and the theme of this weeks challenge is Lace and Pearls.


I started with a square card base which is my favourite card shape and used a piece of K & Co baking paper which has been in my paper collection for many, many years but seemed to fit perfectly with the mother of pearl buttons. The vintage adverts in the background are from a sheet of Graphic 45 paper mounted on to Bo Bunny dotted green paper. The stamps are Scrapbook Sisters Fashion House Stamps which I stamped onto apiece of Basic Grey for the mannequin and then I stamped the bodice on to the Bo Bunny green dotted paper and added some foam pads underneath to give it some shape and then finished it off with black picot trim and a faux pearl necklace.

Have a look at Scrapbook Sisters blog to join the challenge and to get a chance to win some digi stamps in the half-yearly draw.

This card is so you Jeannie,I just love how you achieve that vintage look (That sounds wrong,I don't mean you're vintage,you know I've not got a way with words)I just love the button paper,there's just no way I could have used it though,I'd have had to mount it in a frame to admire. Have a great day,Julie.x
