Gothic frills .........


Tou must make a card with a frill - it could be some lace, frilly ribbon, a hand cut or decorative scissor edge or a folded paper frill - or what ever you choose to make.... you decide!



Fabaroonie dare set by Jo this week!! I had a picture of a card in my head that I wanted to make that was romantic and pretty, it didn't quite come out as planned!!!!!! Half way through making it I almost gave up but I was determined to salvage something from the mess I had made!!!! So here it is - a card probably only suitable to send to a Gothic couple on their wedding day or anniversary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL!!

Unfortunately for me I don't really know any Goths, so I guess this will sit in the card box forever, or until I decide to pull it apart and re use what I can!


Gothy bits used - pp crate avenue and scraps, Heidi Swapp chipboard, bloom and primas, brad from stash. I made the frilly bit with a length of organza ribbon which I gathered up and stitched.

I may have another go at this dare over the weekend and see if I can come up with something I actually like!!(3 weeks in the sun has obviously affected my cardmaking skills!)

Enjoy the weekend!

It's a super card and fits the challenge well. It's funny isn't it how we can start off with an idea and it changes halfway through - happens to me too.
