Lemon Lavender and Lace

Hope it's still a hot one in the UK. I expect everyone.well nearly everyone is wondering about the Royal baby .....not long now!!

Today's card started out as a CD Sunday challenge but then I thought not sure if Fairies or is it an Angel really covered the theme Dragons and Dreams so I've made another card for that challenge and I'll post it tomorrow.

I tried a new shape out as I always need something different for my crafty ladies. I'm having a rest  from my weekly sessions as it's too hot here in the Summer to do much and lots of people have visitors so it gives us all a break. Except of course 'yours truly' has to plan for the Autumn so I never really get a break from crafting.

The card was made from one piece of card and a half oblong cut from the centre then half of the card was folded back....piccie will give you a better idea.

The background paper and image were from a CD by Joanne Sheen 'Victorian Angels and Fairies'. I added a  
lace border and lavender and lemon bows. The flowers were hand made using circles of lemon paper and then cut in a spiral and rolled up to give a rose shape.
I added leaves cut from the same paper and a lemon bow to finish. The background has cream flowers with an orange centre and of course green leaves so I hope this covers me for the challenge at
