Hello my crafty friends,
Well it's that time of the month again and that can mean only one thing,yes,it's Gruffies and Guests DT card time.
This month the theme for the challenge is anything goes or a touch of Lace so that leaves a lot of scope. So we hope to see you over there and getting involved with the challenge at . I do love to see all your creations as I can never get enough of these guys. The challenge this month is sponsored by and there is a £10 voucher to spend with them for the winner.
Well here is my design team card and the rest of the team have come up with some lovely cards to.

I started with a beige background paper that I put through my new A4 Sue Wilson  Quilted Flower embossing folder,which is very pretty. I layered it on to some brown mirri card to give it a nice frame. Then I cut another piece of the mirri card just a little wider than my lace and embossed that also with the same folder,then wrapped my lace on to it and secured it on the back and added some 3D foam pads to the back and added it to the left side of the card. I then used spellbinders labels twenty five to cut around this lovely image of the Gruffies enjoying some ice cream ( I used the largest die in the set) Then I placed the die on to some of the brown mirri card and trace around the outline and cut it out to create a border around the image. I always use double sided tape to secure anything I put on flat as I find it sticks well and stays stuck unlike a lot of glues which I find in time dry out and bits start to fall off. So I stuck the image on the mirri card and then put two layers of foam pads on the back to raise it above the lace strip and stuck it on the card. I had this pre die cut sentiment which I cut out a piece of mirri card to match and then of course the obsession of mine,the bow which I had to match the colours and finished it off with one of these sparkly pompoms which I purchased from the pound shop,great bargain pack of various sizes,I chose yellow to match the yellow of the ice cream tub. I hope you like the finished card and it gives you some inspiration to,happy crafting :)
