CFAS Pins & Lace

Hi di hi all! Happy Hump Day!
It's all downhill from here towards the weekend! Yay!
It's time for a brand new challenge over at Crafting For All Seasons!
The theme this time is
Here's my card!

I used an image from our sponsor who is our very own Jani!
The prize is 3 of her exclusive images!
You just can't buy them!

I used Ball Of Wool
Which I printed out several times, coloured with flexmarkers
I cut one image out, with a nestie then fussy cut sections of the rest,
allowing me to decoupage it up. It looks really effective IRL!
I inked the image while it was still in the die & dotted about with a flexmarker
for a bit of interest in the background.
The buttons are from my button jar. The flower button was  a spare button 
from the suit I wore for my neices wedding a few years back!
I threaded a little button twine through them & tied little bows.

I added a dress form die cut which I embossed & inked,
some lace from The Ribbon Girl & a couple of pins from my stash.
The DP is a mystery so if you recognise it let me know!
Thanks for looking & I hope to see you in the 
Pins & Lace challenge over at CFAS!

I promise to be back once I get moved and settled. Hugs, my friend. :-D
