Pearls & Lace & INSPIRATION GALORE



So how was the royal wedding? Anyone go?
My invitation got lost in the mail I think, so I tried my darndest to stay up & watch it, but here in Canada, at 1 am, I grew very tired; so I called it a night. Then I awoke this morning to catch the royal couple on the balcony. Even saw a kiss! Yup I did, which was apparently more than the people who were actually there saw! Happy Wedding Day Kate & William! Yay!
------------------------------------------------

Now let's get started shall we, I've got a long one since I've been MIA for a few days! heehee
-----------------------------

Do u eva just get so inspired by something that you just have to get going on it?
Well that's how I feel about Tickled Pink Stamps. Yup, all their stamps. I just get so motivated to create when I see them. So when I saw their latest challenge of pearls & lace this week, I knew I HAD to make something for it.
Now, you think pearls & lace & you think girly right?
Well I decided to do pearls & lace on a more masculine note.


This is Frankie Frankenstien from the Lil Haunts Collection.
I got him from Kellie (owner of Tickled Pink Stamps) thru the Tickled Pink Facebook group. She asked everyone which digi from the store they would choose if it was available for one day & one day ONLY? Frankie was my choice. I'm sure Kellie had thought I'd gone mad, so here I am showcasing him! Isn't he wonderful?

The spiderweb lace is from Really Reasonable Ribbons. I made the small green satin rose flower from a tutorial I saw the other day at the Really Reasonable Ribbons blog HERE. A wonderfully easy way to make ribbon flowers! Gorgeous! The tassel I got at Dollarama. And the papers are from a Tim Holtz paper pack. Oh yes, I also hid a piece of my local paper in there, purposefully upside down, so don't even ask!?!



***********************************

NEED SOME MORE INSPIRATION?
Check out these sites! !

Once in a while on my hops around blogland I come across an amazingly gifted blogger who probly gets overlooked! You know what I mean?
Your checkin' out DT works on the challenge blogs & you go.."..hhmmmmmm that's pretty".
How often do u hop on over to tell them you love their work?
I have gotten a few 'popper overs' in my time & really appreciate it, cuz it means I made someone look twice. I digress.

Well today I have two links for you .  TWO amazing blogs that inspire me.
I hope you pop over to check out their works & allow them to inspire you as well.

The first is a fellow Fairy of mine from the Prairie Fairy Fun Friday Designs DT:
Her name is CHRISTINE & her blog
(she is so creative in her works. she always creates something that just makes my jaw drop. you think for challenges to make a card, well Christine she makes a carousel or a mini tree house. LOVE IT!)


And the other is MINNA & her blog

(she is so elegant in her creations. so much eye candy to suit your creative buds. such soft color palettes with glorious coloring & layouts. FANTASTIC)

Hi there, I think you did great to stay up to 1am your time - I owuld have struggled. There were two kisses but you had to be there to see both - the news has only been showing the one since! I would not have thought lace and pearls would ever appear on a male card but you did it, and it worked too. Great card and very inspirational. Elizabeth x

HI Corry, well, I came here from my reader, which I finally had time to take a spin through. Your card is fabulous - I really love the macabre feel to it. Great work with the black and green colors and that flower/tassel thingy is very cool. Thank for the link on the ribbon flower tutorial. I watched it and it is so much easier than the way I have been making them! Very cool!

Have a great weekend.

Hugs,
Linda

How on earth did you manage to stop up till 1am, I'm lucky if I can go past 11pm these days!

Love your card, the dark and moody feel yet placed with feminine accents really works well together.
