This card has a padded front panel
I stuck a piece of quilt wadding to the card and trimmed to fit,
 then over-layed a piece of satin fabric, and secured it at the back.
Over-layed the lace fabric and secured it at the back.
Added the strip of pretty Guipure lace down the side of the panel, and secured at the back.

Added a small image and greeting, matted and layered on pink/white/pink card

Dragons Lair February DT Challenge

February DT Challenge for
Dragons Lair
Theme; Hearts and Flowers

I have used the pretty layered frame from 
Southern Comfort Elements HERE from Dragons Lair 

1. Added a pretty torn pink background which I inked the edges with a Tim Holtz distressed pad (Spun Sugar)
2. Added a lace edge to the left of card.
3. Matted a cream polka dot background strip to gold, 
and wrapped pink ribbon and a lovely cream lace strip, 
this was stuck to the card with double-sided foam tape.
4. I stuck a cream heart doily to the top right of the card
I lifted the top of the doilies with foam tape, 
5. And inked the white heart doily with the spun sugar ink pad,
which I over-layed onto the cream heart. 
6. I torn some cream card to a similar shape as the frame and then inked it ,and stuck the framed raised on foam tape overlaying the cream polka dot panel.
7. Added a small punched pink heart to the bottom right of the card, and added some cream roses and leaves, a little narrow pink ribbon bow, and a small lace bow on top.
