Mine eyes dazzle

I’m sharing a card featuring the new and gorgeous Duchess Betty from Simply B Stamps.

The layout of my card comes from the current sketch at Sketchy Colors, in keeping with the lacy ruffles on Duchess Betty’s dress I’ve swapped out the long rectangular element for some lovely lace.  I also swapped out the smaller oval for a floral element instead.

Over at Cut It Up! their current theme is romance, which this image certainly is and I have the three elements they require (flowers, lace and pearls plus a die cut, I’ve got two) so I’m entering my card there.

I love a tic tac toe challenge to help get a card completed so I’ve played along with the current one at Our Creative Corner and gone for a diagonal line featuring embossing powder, a stamps (the beautiful image) and some lace.
