Lady Heather's Curiosities

Good afternoon fellow bloggers. Ohhhh today is Friday 13th, so how many of you are superstitious?
I have to admit that I am a little....I never walk under a ladder, and if I see a black cat walking across the road then yes, a shiver goes down my spine. The awful thing is that I have broken so many mirrors I must be having many more than just 7 years bad luck!!!!! Today I think I will just stay in my craft room and craft the day away!
But anyway, I am sharing today a special card that I have made for the launch of some new digi stamps that the very awesomely talented Heater Valintin from Lacy Sunshine Stamps has designed!

Click on the banner to check out The Lady Heather Curiosities!
Here is my card that I created using Lucille:

I have coloured Lucille in using Copics

The background of the flower cluster is a Die D-Lites by Spellbinder: Grate Works.
I have used the annoying straggly bits from when you use your hot glue gun to create the cob web effect. ( I new that these would come in handy one day:))!
I have made a lace bow and added a large vintage metal charm with a cameo in the centre which I coloured black.

 The wooden embellishments have been coloured in again using copics.
 As you all probably know I am more a cute, pretty card type of girl and when I was given this image and told what the theme would be I must say I did get a little freaked out:( But to my complete surprise I really did enjoy making this card and now will be adding more of the Lady Heather Curiosities to my Lacy Sunshine Collection......If you hop on over to the Lacy Sunshine blog you  will  find a special post today to celebrate this new collection!
  • I  have cut the base card out using Go Kreate xxl Frame 2
  • The patterned paper that I have used is First Edition J'adore. I have sanded the edges of the card and paper and inked them to give them an aged effect.
  • I have had the cute owl for sometime and thought this would look good on my card, but have added a little stickles black glitter to give him a little more character. Both the Charm and the owl are from Live and Love Crafts. As is the black lace and heart embellishment.
I really would like to know what you think to my card, so if you have time I would love you to leave me a little comment:).

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
