Double D Lavender and Lace

This lavender and lace mood board is very feminine and it was fun to make a card using it for inspiration.

 I needed several birthday cards this month so while I had my materials handy I made a few cards using basically the same design. I originally made this card for the challenge but I thought it looked  more pink than lavender enough even though the PTI paper is called lavender moon. I embossed the bottom with a Swiss dot embossing folder. I tied a ribbon from lace, added some greenery, a couple of Wild Orchid flowers a sentiment from Sue Wilson and some enamel dots.

I decided to make another one in lavender and purple card to post on DD Blog.  I used some Gina K card stock in shades of lavender and purple.  I doubled the border on this card using two of the dies from a Sue Wilson set. Frantic Stamper Ivy, Tim Holtz ferns, and some lace from my stash  are the backdrop for a lavender silk flower. the bottom is embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder

The Prize for this Challenge is this beautiful border.

My teammates have outdone themselves with this board. Go visit the Double D Blog and the pull out your lavender and lace.

Straight from the Heart

The challenge at Dies R Us this time is called Hearts. I chose some pretty paper from PTI in Lavender Moon and cut it with Sue Wilson's Sue-Wilson-DesignsGemini-DiesCentaurus  border die. I added some burlap and lace ribbon the topped it with Cheery Lynn Heart to Heart Doily and and Amy Design. musical stave. I added a few flowers from Wild Orchid and a punched butterfly that was on my desk from another project. 

The design team has some beautiful designs and great inspiration for you.
