Ice Skating at Lilies Little Fairies

Good Morning Everyone, 
It's time for a new challenge at Lilies Little Fairies. This week our theme is...
                                     VINTAGE/SHABBY CHIC
Not really my thing. I usually avoid vintage like the plague but here goes! In fact the most vintage thing about this card is the sewing machine I used!
I've used the gorgeous 'Ice Skating' from Lili of the Valley for today's card.
I've coloured them with promarkers and flexmarkers. The background paper is First Edition - Silent Night.
I've used a Spellbinders poinsettia die, a Marianne Creatables tree die, net and pearls from the Ribbon Girl and ribbon from my stash.

Don't forget, you must a LOTV image on your project to be eligible for the prize draw.


I'd like to enter the following challenges
LOTV Ideas to Inspire - Make it Festive
The Hobby House - Christmas
Bunny Zoes Crafts - Bingo (Diecuts, Sparkle, Stitching)
Divas by Design - Christma sin August
Allsorts Challenge - Stitching

Thank you for taking the time to visit me today and for all your lovely comments.

gorgeous card Lorraine love it all

I know what you mean about the shabby bit I'm afraid I can't distress the edges of perfectly good paper I like my cards to be neat with straight edges lol

Craftdee said...

This is really lovely, Lorraine. I'm like you, avoiding vintage and all that... I love your comment re your sewing machine (my hubby reckons that even though my machine is over 20 years old it's only got the equivalent of 5000 kilometres on the clock, I reckon he has forgotten all those curtains I made when "needs must", lol) I don't know what it is about vintage, I really like it when it's well done, as your beautiful creation is, but just can't seem to work out the formula for myself, Donna xx
