MAWTT challenge

Hello everyone
Thank you for popping by. I really, really value your feedback because you're all so talented. Even if you do not have time to comment I do appreciate your visit
I had a very successful day at Lidll yesterday. I bought 5 packs of the card, 5 packs of the paper and a couple of packs of the patterned paper. And lo and behold, I get in from work at lunch time and husband had been and bought 5 more packs of each of the paper and card! Don't you just love 'em. 
It's a bit cheeky I know, but there has been a few times when I've missed out on these offers. I will be giving some to my craft group and my MIL The stash will last me about 5 years!
GailT - I have to say that after dancing my knees do ache and probably I don't dance as much as I used to but I enjoy the social side of it too. I love watching (especially my daughter) all these dancers having fun

Today's card 
I am going to enter this card into a couple of challenges (so bear with me)
The MAWTT challenge See here
As you can see it's all to do with texture. I posted a similar one last week but I'd done it before tha challenge was launched. This time I have used a different mask with CE texture paste and used an image from DQ Faux Quilling Flourishes from Serif. I have place the tags a little higher on the card and layered up (3 layers) the lacy accents border. More texture from embossing and a 3D bow and resin flower from The Works. All done in shades of lavender

I would also like to enter it into the following challenge too

  3. Beautiful design and layout. I have the materials to start quilling, just haven't been brave enough yet. Thanks for joining the Sisterhood's "Photo Inpiration" challenge.

  4. Hi Karen - this is a lovely card and thought the first one was absolutely fine but see what you mean about putting the tags higher up the card - now how weird is this Karen, we went into our local city centre late on Saturday afternoon with another couple, the idea was to have a couple of drinks and then go for a meal (now to me going to the city centre during the day is normally for shopping not socialising) well we went into the local square to a place called Cubana for a drink with the intention of sitting out - guess where I'm going with this!! They were playing and dancing to Latin American music and me and my friend just sat inside watching them in awe - it was brilliant and what a lovely way to meet people if you are single - must confess some got up a little too close and personal to say they weren't 'together and it was before the 9pm watershed but everyone looked as they were having a fantastic time xx can understand why you love it so much xx good luck with the card challenges xx GailT xx

  5. Gorgeous car today. Wow-you did exceptionally well for Lidl card!!

    Love the colours on this card, and the quilled flower just makes it that bit different. It's lovely.

  14. Hi Karen
    Wow this is so beautiful, love the colours and your super embossing looks really good.
    Now are you sure you have enough card and paper? It may help you to know I got the same amount, as you never know when they will have it on offer again! Well that is my excuse and I'm sticking to it!!!
