Whoopsi Daisy 'Lace & Ribbons' challenge

Morning all - another post today as this should have been done yesterday - however I found out last morning that my laptops got loads of viruses, so I can't use it till its sorted. I thought I was going to be totally out of action, however I have manged to borrow this old computer off my Mum & Dad, which has sat in their loft gathering dust for years. I've only been using it for a few hours & I'm kind of wisheing I didn't bother! Its sooooo slow & I've absolutely NO patience with computers what-so-ever. Bets are on for how long it'll last before it goes in the bin! (or through the window) haha.

Anyhow on to my card, I went for the slightly vicorian, vintagy distressed look, with a pretty, chintsy twist, not really what I'd consider to be my thing at all - but I do like the end result!..


I used sheet no 158 for the lovely victorian looking girly & sheet 29 for the stunning umberella - which I just LOVE!!!

But since I've used it a few times I just LOVE it & will defo buy more when this lots run out.


This is the second card I've done with lace all around - the other one was a totally different style, but it still really works for some designs & I knew all along I wanted to do it with this make, it actually was my starting point for this.
