New Challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu *

And the challenge for the Pink team is ''Tussie Mussie''.  Right out of my repertoire, never made one before now.  I have to say I really enjoyed making this.  I watched a few You Tube Tutorials and decided on a shabby chic one - well near as dammit lol.

For the inside I used a linen fancy doily and the outside some satin from a wedding dress I hacked to pieces..  Cut a circle from white card and covered it with the doily and satin.  I then decorated using various lace, flowers, ribbons and appliques topped up with feathers and pearls.

That's it, all done!

Why not head on over to Eclectic Ellapu and join in with this challenge or the Purple's theme of creating a project using an ''Inspirational Image''.

We look forward to seeing you.

Hugz always
