Our final Karen's Doodles UK challenge!


Well, it's time for the current DT's very last challenge at Karen's Doodles UK, so I'd just like to thank Anne and Joey for keeping everything running smoothly for us for the last few months.  Good luck to all the DT with whatever you're up to next - although I'll still be popping in to see you all :o)  This week our challenge is 'white on white'... not the easiest for me, but I needed a card for a wedding we're going to on Friday so that's what I ended up making.

I've used the 'here comes the bride' image, available here, coloured with promarkers, and I've added glamour dust on the bride's shoes and bodice for a bit of sparkle.  I've used white linen card and embossed it with the cuttlebug swiss dots folder, then just layered everything up and inked all the edges with 'tattered rose' distress ink - this is possibly cheating slightly as it's not totally white is it?!  Added some lace and a computer generated sentiment and that's about it... oh, I did add some viva pearl stuff on the earrings and necklace but I didn't make a very good job of it!

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:
Hopefully I'm off to do a bit of blog visiting now, if the kids let me - I'm finding it really hard fitting everything in at the moment, what with having both kids at home winding each other up, catching up from our holiday (I'm STILL wading through all the washing!) and making sample cards for lots of lovely new stamps from Little Claire.  So there might not be too much happening on my blog this week, but should be lots to show you next week.  I think it's about time I did some blog candy too, haven't done any for ages so I'll try and sort that out... maybe I'll do it as a mystery one, what do you think?

Stunning card Lisa, love the embossing and how you have used lace without making it too fussy. Sounds like you are having about as much school holiday fun as me!!! I wish they would stop fighting/crying/shouting and read a book!
