Fussy and Fancy Featured Guest Designer for Challenge 133 -Tic Tac Toe

Hello and happy Friday!

 
******** 
  
Today the Fussy and Fancy girls
are happy to introduce
our very talented
Guest Designer

Linda Simpson

 
Here's a little about Linda: 
Hi my name is Linda and I am a craftaholic.  I have been crafting all my life but started
paper crafting 16 years ago.
I love different aspects of paper crafting and enjoy mixing different techniques onto my projects.
My favourite theme is vintage with a touch of steampunk. My favourite embellishments are Lace, Pearls, Flowers but of course I love to embellish and have to stop myself from over embellishing my projects.  I run a challenge blog and an education blog for Imagination crafts. I am on the design team of Digi Bells and also Gone Artsy where I get to create lots of altered art projects.  I do hope you like my GDT project for the challenge,
I have used Lace, Ribbon and Sentiment.
 
Hugs Linda xxx

 Linda has created this beautiful
birthday card for our
Tic Tac Toe Challenge
using lace, Ribbon and Sentiment!
 


 
Linda, This is such a lovely and very
feminine card!  The yellow
and coral/pink colors are so pretty together.
What a fun green border around the pretty roses
and the, "Happy Birthday" sentiment!
I love how you added the green ribbon to
compliment the border.
However, my very favorite embellishment on
your card is that luscious lace! Wow!  It's so
very delicate and pretty!
