So chic

   I am pleased to have been invited to be a guest designer for this fortnights Incy Wincy Designs challenge. The theme for the challenge is steam punk and/or vintage and I was given The Paper Shelter image So Chic with which to play. I coloured it using Promarkers and fussy cut it out
   I distressed the edges of the lace design paper taken from an old Joanna Sheen paper pad and matted it onto pink card. Before matting this onto white card I wrapped lace round the left hand side. I attached a doily to the card and on top of this I placed the digi which I had slightly shaped. The flowers were cut from downloadable vignettes using a Carnation Crafts vintage blooms die set. I then added the lace bow and tucked a sentiment plaque behind the flowers.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
