Seeing Double

Good Morning, it's Monday so time for a new challenge at Ooh La La Creations, this week the challenge is "Seeing Double" so we want to see you using your image more than once. For my card I have chosen an image and papers from the "Passion for Fashion" CD, I just love these 1930's/1940's fashions they are just so elegant. The flowers and seam binding are from Wild Orchid and I added a computer generated sentiment and some pearls. Sorry the photo is not very clear but because of the colours it just didn't seem to photograph well, it does look so much better in real life.

Birthday Butterfly

A DT card today for our challenge at Fab 'n' Funky where we have a Bingo challenge. This week we are being sponsored by Pink Cat Studio and Crafts U Print. For my Bingo line I chose 2 Papers, Lace and Butterfly, the papers were from my stash (don't know who they are made by - sorry) and the butterfly was a Cheery Lynn die to which I added a little Stickles. The sentiment is a Pink Cat Studio digi I added a little colour with Copics cut out with a Nestie and threaded a ribbon through.
