Lavender and lace

Hello lovely people,

It's Thursday again and so to a new challenge from Crafty Little Fairies where this week we have a fab theme for you of...


We are sponsored by the lovely Stamp and Create who have a $20 voucher up for grabs :-)

This is a super easy theme right?  Well, I thought so too until I found I had absolutely no DP of anything even remotely resembling lavender in my craft room.
So, I just had to go shopping and bought some more of the beautiful Maja DP in shades of lavender... and possibly a few extras while I was there!

This sweet little lady is a Saturated Canary digi stamp and oh, such fun to colour all the pleats and hair :-)

I was rummaging in my box of dies and came across these heart stem dies which I haven't used for a bit and yes, I am still loving the double bow right now!
You can see that I have curved the sentiment slightly and raised the middle up on foam pads to add a little dimension.

Card recipe;
DP: Vintage Spring Basics - Maja Design
Shaped base: Large Frilly #2 die - Go Kreate

What a delicate little sweetheart she is, Kat. So pretty - I cannot get over how perfect your stitching it - looks fabulous on both panels! Try as I might, mine never comes out looking as pretty as yours. Love the little ribbon and lace, too. Kat, I'm sorry not to be visiting as often as I like - hopefully the bingo game will not be much longer - maybe another 3 weeks? hugs, de
