Emily Rose Hatter

We have a fantastic challenge for you over at Little Miss Muffet Challenges and this time our theme is "Fancy or Lacy!" I know we all love to dress up our projects with lace and lots of embellishments - at least for me, it's hard not to! So to celebrate this compulsive habit, I've decided to make a challenge of it - so the fancier or the lacier the better!! :D

For my project I used Emily Rose Hatter from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and placed her in front of Ivy Window Wall the from Make it Crafty. Then I used the coordinating chippies and diecuts to create the sentiment (N3 Swirl Frame chippie from Make it Crafty and N3 Notables Die from Whimsy). I had to chop the frame a little and move around a couple swirls to get it to fit in the corner but it's still just as fancy and elegant. :D The sentiment is also from Whimsy and is from Birthday Letter Seals.

The fancy part comes from the wide lace ribbon and all the pearls scattered around the card. Plus I was able to use two of my pearl brads from Whiff of Joy at the top corner.... and of course, the frame/sentiment helps. The papers are new and something I picked up at the scrapbook store the other day - I've noticed that yellow is coming back into season! So many to choose from and they're all perfect for spring.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you've enjoyed my card. Don't miss out visiting the Little Miss Muffet Challenges for more inspiration and also the current Paris Blog Hop - which only goes until Sunday to be eligible for the prizes!

I'd like to ener this into the following challenges:
