Crafting for all Seasons #62 - Pins and Lace

Good morning all.
Had a lovely run over to Galashiels on Monday, I love the Tweed Valley at this time of year - the colours are just beautiful. I wish I'd taken my camera with me! We waited at the garage and had a cuppa while they did the recall on my car then decided to have a drive down to Melrose for some lunch while we waited for the service on hubby's car.

I made a start on the next wedding invites yesterday, 36 fronts all printed and heat embossed and now weighed down with a large box of wooden stamps to hopefully flatten the card again. Hope to get the card bases and layers cut out today.

It seems ages since I shared a card with you so here goes. Today it's time for a new challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is "Pins and Lace". We're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. We're being sponsored by our own team member Jani from Jani's Kreativewelt who gave us images to work with. 

I've used Elefant, coloured with promarkers. The backing paper was found lying on my desk discarded from a previous project and I've not had time to find out where it came from. Flower die is from Memory Box. Circular dies are all Spellbinders. Lace, pins, sentiment, ribbon flower and gems are all from my stash.

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the girls inspiration, you won't be disappointed.
