Just Relax!

   This card is for one of my step daughters whose birthday is on Tuesday. She has five boys under 14 so I think she could do with a little relaxation.
   The image is Lola, one of the Scuffy Little Cat stamps from Crafter's Companion. I coloured it using Promarkers and used liquid pearls for the string of beads. The edges were rubbed along a distress ink pad and then the edges of the card were brushed with the same ink. I also used the ink to colour the vintage lace from Marienne design before wrapping it round the corner of the card. After matting the image onto white card I fixed four pearls and a bow to this lace. Finally I stamped a sentiment and attached this to the card.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Without Words - femme fatale
   Papertake Weekly - lace and pearls
   Crafty Sentiments Designs - CAS or full on

   Hobby Cutz - lace and bows
