TSTR-Beautiful Romance

Once again I had fun participating as a Guest Designer at The Shabby Tea Room.  For this week's challenge, I made a pair of all-occasion mini note cards, 3-1/2" x 5", using two vintage image collages from the "Lady Rose" set in Janet's shop, Digital Paper, on Etsy.

Starr is our host this week...our challenge was to use green and white, and lace, gathering inspiration from the beautiful photo below...

Of course, the lace part of the challenge was the first part I picked up using a lacy edge punch along the bottom edges, and adding some crocheted lace along the side edges.  The soft, pale green patterned paper is cut from the centers of a couple pieces from the Prima Romantique 6x6 paper pad...

I simulated the white plates in the inspiration photo by using chipboard frames around the images, and the crystal glasses and vases with the clear glitters used on the white painted frames.  The pink lady card uses a clear German glass glitter, while the bicycle card uses clear coarse glitter...two different types of sparkle...

Patterned paper: Prima Romantique collection      Digital images: byDigitalPaper on Etsy
Chipboard frames: Tattered Angels      Lace:      Edge punch: Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace
Pearls: Recollections      Paper roses: Prima      Dies: My Favorite Things Royal Leaves      Hug Snug seam binding
Miscellaneous: clear German glass glitter, clear coarse glitter, handmade pearl wires
