Vintage Lizzie and exciting news!!

Hi everyone, I have some very exciting news!! Linda from Jazzlins Designs has asked me to be a member of her DT!! How chuffed am I? Linda is a really wonderful person, and has the most fab selection of goodies in her shop. I've been ordering from Linda by mail order and I'm so happy with her prices and fantastic service. Jazzlins webshop will be opening soon too :-)

I've used Lizzie with Muff from Whiff of Joy and the beautiful Designer Doiley Marianne die (both from Jazzlins) as my starting point for this card. Lizzie is coloured with promarkers and cut out. The bp is one I made with Elusive images snowflake stamps - i stamped them with a sparkly EP onto cream card and then sprayed with some aqua spray ink. It looked a bit drab so I gave it a generous blast of gold firework ink to bling it up.

I used the Marianne die to cut and emboss 3 doileys from cream pearl card and then inked them with an aqua dye inkpad. The cream ribbon is from my stash and the gorgeous flowers, heart shaped pearls and sprays of pearls are from Jazzlins. The flowers take ink beautifully so the white ones can be matched to what ever ink/markers you've used. The sentiment is from Elusive images, cut out with a nestie and again inked with aqua ink around the edges.

I'm entering Lizzie in the following challenges:

Charisma Cardz: Christmas Crafting
Passion 4 Promarkers: Vintage/Shabby chic
I love promarkers: Pearls and swirls
Daring Cardmakers: Christmas card
Stamptacular: Layer it on (use at least 5 layers - bp, ribbon, 3 doileys and Lizzie!!)
Lots to do: Vintage
There's Magic in the Air: Christmas card with snowflakes

Thanks for calling by today,
Claire xx
