Marvelous Mauve.......

 Morning all, hope you have all enjoyed an extra hour in bed this morning !!!!

Well, that's summer over the nights will be getting darker earlier, bad weather will be settling in and the central heating will be working overtime..... i'll bet you're glad you've popped over to my blog today.....i've cheered you all up.....NOT !!! LOL !!!

At least this card has a hint of summer colours....

Anyone who knows me, or reads my blog regularly, know that purple and all shades of mauve's are my favourite.

I decided, for a change, to sew directly onto the patterned paper (as it was a good quality paper) rather than onto linen card.
The paper is from Sara Davies (crafters companion) "Signature Collection- butterfly lullaby". The pad has some beautiful papers in.
 I've used 3 shades of mauve threads, and combined the paper with toning backing paper that has embossed dots on. A piece of lace across the bottom and then some mauve ric-rac ribbon. 

Topped with a felt rose. Then some pale pink tiny pearls completes this card.
I added a pink pearl into the centre of the rose too.

Have a relaxing Sunday, thanks for stopping by, and see you again soon. x
