Its a girl thing at Crafty Ann's

Hi there, I've been totally confused with the days this week after the long weekend off. but its Friday already the weekend is nearly  here and its time for a new challenge at Crafty Ann's! Our theme for the next fortnight is 'Its a Girl Thing' so I've gone for delicate pastels colours, lots of sparkle and ribbon and lace for my card. Don't forget our lucky winner will receive a fab prize from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop

I've used a beautiful bp from Crafty Ann's Mottled Stone collection, and I've used a prima mask and stencil paste brushed with pearl mica powder to create some detail in the corners. The image is Crafty Ann's lovely 'Morning Glory' coloured with promarkers. I've added faux pearls, seambinding ribbon,  a couple of pins made with beads from my stash  and lace to finish off . You can see the detail a bit better in this pic

I'm entering this one in the following challenges:
Crafters Cafe: Pearls and swirls
Digital Tuesday: Anything goes
Fab'n'Funky: go green
Paper take weekly: anything goes
Really Reasonable Ribbon: Flowers and lace
The Ribbon Girls: ribbon or lace

Right i'd better get myself ready for work, we're soooooo busy at the minute I don't seem to have a minute. Still it looks like the weekend is shaping up to be perfect crafting weather as it hasn't stopped raining for the last couple of days. Hope you're escaping the worst of the weather where you are
thanks for popping by

  1. Very delicate effect - such a pretty card. You're not the only one confused as to what day it is - where did the week go??

  2. This is gorgeous Claire. The stencilled corners are lovely, the beaded pins a great touch and the whole design is fab. Are those faux pearls made by you? If so - just how do you get them all so neat????
