Another challenge

Goodmorning to all of you!

Today I'm participating to another challenge by Embellish Magazine.

This time I used a lot of elements. Paper, a flower, a sticker and even some lace!
The only trick I did...was to use only one sticker which I trimmed and sticked on the the right top and bottom of my card. It seems as if I used an oval sticker. Doesn't it look nice?

I hope you enjoy. Have a nice day...


Supplies: Paper: with all my heart by SEI, kraft by Bassill Basics Paper, Baby Girl by DCWV
Sticker: Graceful by My Mind' EyeChipboard: Restoration Collection by Crate Paper
Flower, Lace
