Creative Inspirations Lace & Pearls & Edwin????

Hey Peeps!Wooooooooooooooooo Happy Wednesday! Yes you've guessed it as it's Wednesday we hav a new challenge at Creative Inspiraions & this weeks theme is Lace & Pearls, when I saw the theme I automatically though "Oh I must use Edwin!!!" Well I didn't really but I did have Edwin with butterfly out & I thought he would look good colored in pastels.....and isn't he just a dish???

For mt DT card - I thought why do do another easel card, I'm lovin' these right now! Pink card stock is from the paper mill, paper is My Minds Eye, pearls from The Works (a bargain at only £1 a pack!) I used a Magnolia Doo Hickie Tilda's Lace to make the lace for my card, Magnolia Edwins both stamped in memento & colored with pro markers, plain & scalloped circles cut with nestabilities, greetings samped in memento from Forever Friends & Martha Stewart Monarch butterfly punch

A close up of the butterflies with pearl centres - I am lovin' these butterflies right now too, I wanted the punch for the longest time & I am so pleased I bought it. I was in Hobby Craft a week or so ago & it was an impulse buy, I knew I'd probably get it cheaper elsewher but I wanted it sooooooooo much! LOL

I thought Edwin cashing buterflies from an older Spring kit went great with edwin from the buterfly dreams collection............




I love the greeting too - "Wishing you a magical day filled with dreams-come-true" awwwwwwwww so sweet! I'm also entering this into the Magnolia Down Under Challenge - My Favourite Things, as on my card I have lots of may favourite things....I love these papers, Butterflies, Edwin, the lace...need I go on LOL

I do hope you'll play along with our challenge, as you never know you may win this weeks prize, or even be picked in out Top 3!!!! See you on our blog!!

I'm off to work - my Dad is coming round to keep an eye on my Kitchen fitters, just in case they try to fit units in my bedroom or something LOL fingers crossed it's finished for when I get home, Dad will have gone so it'll be a surprise when I walk throught the door ROFL! x x x

Adorable card, Caroline! What a great idea to put 2 Edwins on a card for a change! We can rarely see that. Poor neglected Edwin! Love it!
