Fancy Corners at CCT

It's Thursday so time for another challenge at Cute Card Thursday! This week we want to see some fancy corners on your creations and our sponsor for this challenge is a gift certificate from Sugar Pea Designs. Stop by the CCT blog to read all about it and see what fancy corners the rest of the DT came up with!

Now I have to admit, this card has been sat in my 'almost done' box for a year! I had coloured the tulips (an old Elusive Images stamp) and fussy cut them out before fixing to the fancy cut base.  Even the corners were done, in fact it was all made but looking plain despite the fancy cut work.  I knew it needed something, a bow or a text .. .. but didn't have any ribbon in lilac or the colours in the tulips.  So, thinking white would fit the bill I decided to use some of the Marianne Design Tulle and tied a triple loop bow then fanned it out. My original idea was to keep the card flat for posting, oh well! The bow was certainly what was needed.

The Marianne Design dies I used for this card: LR0236 for the fancy oval mat and LR0285 in the corners. I've chalked the embossed areas through the die with lilac chalk ink. The papers are old pieces from my stash.

I've been crafting a little more over the past few days, some little ones for St Francis so will hopefully be able to share them with you once I've finished titivating! Those little cards sometimes take just as long as a bigger one!

As usual, I'll pin to my Pinterest album very soon. Thinks for stopping by to take a look (((hugs to all))).
