Let's craft and create challenge 110

This is my design for Let's craft and create challenge 110: lace and pearls.

The card blank is white (although the photo has made it look as if it is pale pink). The die cut cross is a Spellbinders die cut with a piece of matt silver using my new Todo. The circular stamp was from Hobbycraft, as were the flowers. Black lace from stash, pearls from Poundland.

I didn't have a long enough piece of the lace, so I used two snippets with the flowers added to fill the gap.

This is also for:

More mixed media 'red' challenge

This is my creation for this month's More mixed media 'red' challenge' - please click on the link to see the marvellous creations by the rest of the team and we would love you to join in our challenge.

An altered box lid - the original box was red with white spots as you can see at the side. I covered the lid with white gesso and then used mod podge to adhere a piece of the top later of a paper napkin with hearts. I used a Balzer's Design roses stencil with imagination crafts silver sparkle medium, then used a piece of sequin waste dabbing through the holes with red Colorbox ink. Ribbon, hearts etc were then added.

I intend to use this box for a Valentine's present for John ... although I haven't got a clue what I'll put in it!
