Lovely Lace at Live & Love Crafts Challenge

Hi my lovelies, first of the month and time for our third challenge at Live and Love Crafts, we had some amazing takes on Elizabeth's sketch last month, this month our theme is 'Lovely Lace or Terrific Trim'.

This is another card I've been asked to make by a colleague at work. Her friend adopted a little boy and girl and they're having a joint naming day for them both. Apparently it's hard to get a good choice of naming day cards, and she's never seen a joint one. The little girl is 6 and the little boy is 4, but I like this image from Sarah Kay as they're holding hands and look so sweet.

I've used Maja Designs As Long As I Live papers and I've distressed the edges with Walnut Stain. I've trimmed the middle panel with Lace Vanille and also used Pearl String.

The sentiment is computer generated and I've attached an Idea-ology Hinge Clip the roses and Chrysanths are from Kort and Godt and the Shabby Chic Magnolia Tinsel Dahlia is available here.

I've also added sparkle with Glamour Dust.

Our 'Lovely Lace or Terrific Trim' at Live and Love Crafts runs all month, we can't wait to see what you create.
