Drinking buddies

Hello lovely people,

I am off on my holidays tomorrow so you won't hear much from me for the next week!  Dr Hubby and I are off to the Peak District so I have everything crossed for some sunshine!

I thought I would share one more card with you before I go and I may have something to share mid-week if Mr Blogger plays nicely!

I made the memo pin from some wire and used my fave combo of seam binding and lace layered together with a pretty bow. I have had comments on my neat bows before so let me tell you there is much fiddling with them to get them how I want them and I always put a line of glue along the back of the cut edges to stop them fraying.

Having paper pieced the dresses there wasn't much of the image left to colour with my Copics and I then cropped the bottom off to give a square image.

Card recipe;
Image: Stamping Bella - Victoria and Juliette's Night Out (available at Dies to Die For)
DP: Maja Designs Vintage Spring Basics
Seam binding / pearls: from Wild Orchid Crafts
Lace: from The Ribbon Girl

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;

1.  Bunny Zoe (case a DT card - I have used the pretty colours from Silvie's card)
2.  As You Like It (fave rubber stamp - love this one as it is so versatile and I have used it loads both coloured and paper pieced)
3.  A Creative Romance (anything goes)

Thanks for visiting,

Kat xx
