Softpencil Thursday Featuring a Mandala!

The gorgeous Mandala on my card is "Labyrinth of Love", and was designed by Elizabeth's very talented sister, Natalia. This design was so much fun to color! The design was printed on cream colored CS, colored with Copics, and highlighted with pink Smooch. I added pearls by Mark Richards and  flowers from "Got Flowers?". Buttons are from Buttons Galore and More. The lace was purchased at a Flea Market more years ago than I care to share! LOL I threaded the buttons with embroidery floss from my stash. A Nesties from the Polka Dot Frame set was used to cut the flowers. A MS punch was used for the border along with an organza ribbon from Hobby Lobby.
This Mandala and many more, along with the cutest digi stamps you have ever seen are available in the Softpencil Shop at very reasonable prices. Elizabeth will also be sponsoring several challenges this month, so take a look at the Softpencil Blog and see what's new!  Need some inspiration? The DT has been busy working on their projects.
