For A Lady

Good morning to you all, hope you are having a lovely weekend. I am scheduling this so hopefully you are reading it!

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Hobbycutz and the theme this week is For A Lady.  Here is my card:

We are sponsored this week by Aurora Wings and the DT were given an image to use and I have used this gorgeous Pansy which was a joy to colour.  She has been coloured with Copics and lots of Liquid Pearls added too.  The papers are Craftwork Cards Correspondence as are the flower, sentiment and postcard.  I have used Spellbinders Grand Decorative Labels 8 and Labels 8 for the card and papers, the image has been cut with Grand Ovals and a frame made with Grand Decorative Ovals One.  The pearl heart is from The Hobby House.  On the flower and flat backed pearl on the flower I have used Frantage Rose Fragments.  The beautiful laser cut has been painted with acrylic paint to match the papers.  There are lots of gorgeous lasercuts if you would like to have a look here however Kobie is in the middle of relocating from one end of the country to another so can't process the orders til the end of March.  Here is another view:

Please have a look at the images from Aurora Wings here there are some beautiful ones.
