New day...New Challenge....

Good morning ...I do hope that you had a good weekend...
Today, is a new Challenge over at the Sweet Lilac Blog....firstly I would like to say a big thank you to all the crafters who entered last months Challenge ...wow, there were some stunning cards ...and well done to the winner...
The new theme is.......Lace and / or Buttons......oh and off course there must be some Sweet Lilac flowers or lace involved too.....
Here is my DT inspiration ...I do hope that you like it...


I have used one of my favourite Clarity Stamp sets...the Corset Montage set..
I stamped the images in VersaFine ink....Vintage Sepia and used Paper Piecing for the corset..


This gorgeous lace is from Sweet Lilac and I used a vintage button from my stash ....


I do love the crisp image that Clarity Stamps give....I added a little colour with watercolour pencils...


To complete the design, I twisted six stems of contrasting flowers so that it gave me a lovely compact border...which I then shaped and glued into place.
If you would like to see the other great projects from my fellow team members just go to..... 
Or even better, why not enter the Challenge...there is a brilliant prize to be won each month...
Right I am off to make Karl a Birthday card...last minute or what...
His Birthday is tomorrow!!!!!!!!!
Have a good day and see you soon....Jo. X
