Elsie...Roses and lace

Happy Sunday everyone...
Just popped in from the garden to do a post and show you a new make.

I used an Elsie panel from Wild Rose Studio and scallop nestabilities. 
Just a little touch of ochre chalk around the edge.
The papers are from the new Bluebell pack and the Gingham pack from WRS also.
Lace trim and a lace doilly make this such a romantic card.

I used a Promarker to colour in a light green leaf that just wasn't the right colour to match the ribbon on the pink roses.

These little roses I think I must have had in my sewing stash for about 10 years...

I'm entering this card into the Papertake weekly challenge of 

Hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend and Thanks for coming to see me.

Happy Fathers Day...


 Hope all the Dads have had a good day!
This is the card I made for my Dad. 
This great photo was taken on my parents wedding day, April 1961.
My dad was 23 and had just finished his National Service with the Royal Marines.

Great to have this image of him in his prime.

I kept it simple mounting onto white and then using this fantastic patriotic paper from
 The man about town paper pack from Wild Rose Studio
