New Card Challenge - Annabel Texting

Good morning,

This morning I am sharing my card for the new card challenge at the Ribbon Girl, as always it can be any shape, any image as long as it is a card. 

This is an LOTV stamp called 'Annabel Texting'.  I have coloured her with DI reinkers, she was a real joy to colour.

I sprinkled some ivory frantage around the image and finished it off with some ivory pearl string around the edges. 

The papers are from the new Maja  'Sofiero' collection and are mono white/sand, I have painted some gesso around the edges. 

I cut a joy die (fancy flower edge die) in brown card, stamped it with a Versamark Watermark stamp and sprinkled some ivory frantage over the top and heat set it, the same has been done to the fantasy die on the left hand side.  In the centre of the flowers, I have added some Ivory pearls. Above the image I have placed some Ivory Pom Pom trim. 

The flowers at the top of the card consist of a peach lily, mocha beaded stamen and ivory/cream beaded berries. The flowers at the bottom are peach cottage rose, carnation, and ivory/cream beaded berries. The lily and rose has had some white gesso painted onto them. 

I just adore the filigree heart, to make it a bit interesting I have glued on a few ivory pearls, they are self adhesive but I like to add a bit of glue to them too. There are three more of the pearls on the right hand side of the card.

The gorgeous ribbon is ecru satin berisford and has a lovely sheen to it, in the the centre I have placed a an oval diamante pearl embellishment. The lace is one of my favourites  ivory guipure called 'Grace'.

On the base I have placed some double row pearl trim to the top of the lace.
