Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 10 June 2016

 It is time for me to show you my Inspiration Post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog.

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "PEARLS AND LACE".
 The Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Blog Design Team this week therefore have to make their creations fit the monthly topic of "pearls and lace"

For this shaped birthday card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Nostalgia".  I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers.  

The backing papers are from a Creative Crafting World CD.  For the shape of the card I have used a Dutch Doobadoo template.

I decided the make a banner to go across the card and added some wide ribbon that I had hand sewn some lace onto.

The card is finished off with some doodling, stamped sentiment cut out with a small circle die, washi take and lots and lots of Nuvo pearl drops.
