All For Love

Just for your information this challenge has been extended until the 15th of May due to Blogger problems – Thanks Julie- she has extended the link options as well as the comments.

I think this may be too late for the challenge now- I have been trying to upload this post for two days and have not had any luck with blogger GRHHHHH this morning I tried and yey it loaded so here it is anyway- I hope you enjoy.

Flourishes stamps are releasing their new stamp sets this week and have a few fun things to enter for the chance to win them- one was a sort of bingo  called Let’s get 3 in a Row!where you picked a line and made a card using the three objects in that line on your card. Well I had a hard time choosing which line to use and finally settled on the centre row going down- pink,flower and lace and now looking at the grid it could also fall into the bottom left to top right grid of die cut,flower and scallop I think the only things missing from this card that are on the grid are ribbon and buttons- I actually had them out to include but it just didn’t look right where i wanted to put them so I ended leaving them off. I didn’t have any proper flourishes in pearls so I made my own with the pearl strips they look a bit wonky but that just adds to the handmade look right, and the lace is actually stuff I bought years and years ago and have in my stash- I think I paid $1 for the lot and there is metres of it some in short lengths others in longer lengths- it was all tangled up (that was why it was so cheap I think) and I carefully untangled it and wound it on a card- I have used a heap and still have so much left
