Make My Monday #47 - Victorian romance

Good Morning all, i hope you are enjoying the bank holiday weekend and having some good weather, its been a bit mixed down here.  That storm we had Friday night was something else, never seen anything like it before. 

Anyway today is the start of a new challenge over at Make My Monday


So if you fancy joining in and seeing what the rest of the design team came up with please do pop over.  

This theme is about the furthest you can get from my normal style, so looking for ideas i spent ages going through my stash and found these vintage sepia images.  Ive added lots of lace and pearls.  I imagine these ladies are daydreaming about their love.

The photos are dark but its all matted on dark brown not black as it looks.  A5 brown cardblank.  Soft peach patterned paper wrapped with pale peach lace, I then mounted the 3 images, added 2 beige crochet flowers from my stash and lots of peachy pearls. 

For the sentiment i used a wooden happy and covered it in chocolate pearl embossing powder.  

Close up.

Items used:  Doolicraft images
Paper - poundland 'pretty pastels'
happy wood sentiment - the works
Chocolate brown cardstock - payperbox
Cosmic shimmer cocoa embossing powder

We look forward to seeing your Victorian Romance entries at

Thank you for stopping by and to all of you who left comments last week.  Enjoy your bank holiday monday. Emma

  15. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never
    wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell
