Morning everyone,

I feel so very honoured to be sharing this card with you today as Guest Designer for the fabulous Challenge at Live and Love Crafts

This is a long post, so  grab a coffee so you don't go to sleep!! lol

The theme is lovely, it is simply 'Easter'.  Well, there are so many lovely products to be had in this brilliant shop.  It has to be my favourite shop of all times!  So, as  virtually everything I have used is from this shop you can imageine I had such fun making this card.  Everything is such a joy to work with, and it shows in the finished product I think. (Well that is what I feel, and you will agree I am sure, that is a lovely feeling).

I opted to make a shaped card with a criss cross inside  panel which houses a detachable bookmark.  I am sure this will have bene done before, although I have not seen it, but anyhow this is my verson.

Materials used:
Pion 'Poem of Spring' Papers 
Pion Image Sheet - Fairytale of Spring 
'Romantique' Lace 
Shabby Seam Binding - Vanilla Cream 
Lace - 'Petite'
Pearl String 
Organza Roses Trim - cream 
Berries Pins 
Kort and Godt cream Chrysanthemums 
Poppies - white, pink and turquoise 
Machine Stitching
Pearls from my stash

There are several views.  Shaped cards I find so hard to photograph, and the photos never seem to do the card justice somehow.  But I have given it my best....


I would like to enter this into the following Challenges:
