Gypsy Caravan

Hi Crafters,
 
A friend of mine really likes Gypsy caravans and so I created this card for her birthday...
 
Recipe
Tattered Lace Die Cut - Gypsy Caravan (Ebay)
Magnolia Lace Semi Circle Die made in to a circle
Magnolia Lace Border Die for edging
Trimcraft Fun Fair papers
Penny Black Sentiment and Banner Stamp
Glitter Ribbon
Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Sparkle Embossing Powder
 
I have been itching to use these papers since I bought them from the NEC and I thought this card was perfect for the colours and patterns on the papers. Gypsy caravans are always painted and decorated very colourfully and these papers reminded me of that. They have encapsulated glitter on them in parts and I echoed this by using the Cosmic Shimmer embossing powder around the edges of the lacy borders. My friend was really pleased with her card and therefore so was I.
 
Challenges I'd like to enter:
Eureka Stamps - #144 Three or More Patterned Papers.
Scribble & Scrap - #46 ATG
 
Well that all from me,
 
Lorraine

Those papers really do lend themselves to the TL Gypsy Caravan Lorraine. Right back to my childhood when I had a school friend who came every summer in a caravan much like that, I have associated bright colours with them.

As always it's lovely to see you at Allsorts challenge, many thanks for joining in.
