Christmas in July




this entire card is made from magazine scraps and a few bits of lace and pearls from my stash.The sentiment stamp is from Lucy's.I think I should go back to the craft room and add a strip of black velvet ribbon with a bow (across the top of the lace border). What do you think ?
I'm a bit disappointed with my photo ,it's very very sunny today and the antique colours all look way too bright.
Unscripted Sketches - challenge 116 -above sketch.

Make My Monday - challenge 8 - Vintage with lace and pearls .They have had the vintage theme running all month and it's one of my favourites but for some reason I just haven't found the time to enter.

A beautifully layered card - I dont think it needs the extra velvet ribbon as its perfect as it is! It's great you have entered the Make My Monday challenge - hope to see you playing next week too!
