NURTURE YOURSELF {Fresh Brewed Designs Challenge}

Flowers and Lace Challenge
FRESH BREWED DESIGNS

Hi my lovely followers and visitors, just a quick reminder about our current Challenge: FLOWERS and LACE that is happening over at Fresh Brewed Designs.  For all the rules and details, please click HERE.

I have created a centre step card using this Fresh Brewed Designs image called HARMONY . Isn't she just so elegant, would love to have legs like that.  You can purchase her here.

The image has been paper pieced and coloured with Copics.  The design paper and brads are from my stash. The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC.  The folded flowers have been created with square punch-outs and here is a tutorial for them elsewhere on blog.  I have created faux blue lace with Chiswick border punches.


I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:
