Have a Lovely Day

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I have been playing with the Cricut and pretty laces again! Inspired by the photo and the design team's pretty work at The Shabby Tea Room, this is my results! Card is 5" x 7" cut from white Colorbok cardstock. The pretty papers are from DCWV The French Country Stack.  As you can see, some of these papers are glittered. Edges of the papers are distressed to give a shabby chic look.
Cricut Cartridges: 
Formal Occasion - Page 45 Fan is cut 3" from white and the pink paper. I have been wanting to try the fan image for some time and thought this would be a good focal point for the card. I ran the pink paper through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder. A strip of lace is gathered and glued around the edges. After the lace was attached, I found another piece of lace that I wanted to add. I hand cut the pretty lace and layered it over the pink paper. That is right! I covered up most of the embossing- but I do like the looks of the fan now. Fan is pop dotted on the card for dimension.
Mother's Day Bouquet - Flower 8 is cut 1.5' and 1.25" from white card stock. Flower is attached on the fan. In the center of the flower is a pretty gold metal filigree button with a pink stone.
Just Rite Stamps- Be Happy Set - "Have a Lovely Day" is stamped with Biscotti ink.
Recollections - Gold rhinestones are added on the fan and on the lace corner.
A white crinkled ribbon bow completes the look!
Photo inspiration 

The Shabby Tea Room - Ch. 178 Lazy Days. Use colors from the photo and include a metal element.
I incorporated the blue, green, and white colors. Also gold from drapes and I used pink for the flower. Hope I did not use too much pink! Metal button!
Now who wants to relax in such a pretty setting as in the photo and maybe use the lacy fan!
