Chocolate, Coffee & Cards – Lace & Glitter

Hello, how are things in the world of you?

I’m here today with my DT make for the new challenge starting over on the Chocolate, Coffee and Cards challenge blog and our theme this fortnight is Lace & Glitter!

We are sponsored this time by:

My card today features a Mayzy Art image called Shawna with Latte and she is available here
Such a fabulous image and so much fun to work with.

I decided as we are Chocolate Coffee and Cards, and Shawna is holding a latte, I would go for chocolate and coffee colours. See I make some sense sometimes! J

I decided to use a mask to create my background which I have not done in ages using the glorious Imagination Crafts Sparkle Medium. Glitter to the max!

Basic Ingredients:
Dies:  Sizzix Ovals – Elements from Spellbinders ‘Botanical Swirls & Accents’, ‘Delicate Asters’ and ‘Jewel Flowers & Flourishes’– Tattered Lace Foliage & Corners
Paper/Card: American Crafts – Ivory Velvet – LOTV ‘Country Gentleman’
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir Pencils
Others: Gold Frantage – Imagination Crafts ‘Leafy Curls Border’ Mask – Imagination Crafts ‘Metallic’ Sparkle Medium – Lace & gems from stash
Hopeless Hand drawings: None! Phew!

I hope you will join us at Chocolate, Coffee and Cards this time. Now who doesn’t like lace and glitter! Check out the blog for all the wonderful DT inspiration and play along!

Thanks so much for looking!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
