Lady Marmalade

The Cute Card Thursday challenge this week (and I've not done a CCT challenge for quite some time!) is:

Music and Dance
You'll have to excuse the poor quality photographs - its the best I can do with the halogen spotlights in the kitchen at 6:30am!

I'm really pleased with the Holly and Madison downloads from Charmed Cards and Crafts and really wanted to use this image plus it reminds me of the song 'Lady Marmalade', which is one of my favourite songs! I've just bought the backing paper - its a 12 x 12 scrap page - Far East Print by DCWV and is not something I would normally buy, but at 25p a sheet, it would be rude not to!

I added the layered ribbon and the gems and then decided it needed something else, so out came the wire and the pony beads!

A fairly simple card (yes, the image was pre coloured!) but it took me ages to make as I kept faffing around with the layout! Ah well!

  • Backing paper: DCWV - Far East Print 12 x 12

  • Ribbon & Gems & Embellishments: All from my stash
