Throwback Tuesday #5

A sweet, delicate number up today!

The deets: every Tuesday, I will post a card that has been sitting in the draft closet too long. At the end of each month, I will randomly select a winner from all the valid challenge entries!
The challenge: link up an old papercraft related blog post, card photo, or post one of your old drafts/pictures! An additional entry will be given to those who comment on the Throwback Tuesday posts for that month.
The prize: a big ol' box stuffed with scrapbooking goodies!
Sorry, but due to crazy shipping costs, this challenge is open to the US only!

My previous thoughts: 

Some Glossy Accents keeps the lace in place and the roses as well - this stuff is like the cardmakers super glue - love it!

And the handmade postage stamp-like embellishment...

The whole card...

The fix: I like the colors of this card, but the lace looks a little wonky here. I think I might also sneak in some pearls beneath the stamp die cut, just to balance it out a bit. I can't be too harsh with this card though, because it always had a soft spot in my crafty heart. ;)

That's it for today, folks! Thanks for popping in and God bless!

  1. Clare, I can't find anything wrong to change on this gorgeous card. It seems so balanced to me, I know a second look for you could make you think differently though:-)!!!

  2. This is the most gorgeous pink, Clare! Did you dye it yourself?

  3. Couldn't find anywhere to link, but here's my oldie, from 2011:

  4. But it's so pretty, why change anything?!

  5. That is just gorgeous! I wouldn't change a thing!
