Hi there!!! I haven't been around blog world for a while. I wasn't planning on being away for so long but we (husband and I) are still trying to juggle one computer not for long, I believe this week is when I get my computer. Can't wait!!
Ok. Now for the fun stuff :)
I created this card for the Lacy Days challenge over at Caardvarks. I have never participated in any of their challenges and I think I've only been to their site once needless to say that will all change from here on :)
Creating a card with lace does not come natural to me. For some reason the end result always looks blah and over done. However, when I found this tiny heirloom lace I knew I had to buy it and give it another try. That very same day I also bought that yummy floral ribbon (MM). Well, a year later I put it to good use :)
In this close up I just want you to see the butterfly and the shimmery swirl. I love the depth and detail :)
As far as creating more cards with lace, I think I'll leave it to the pros ;) Well that's it for now I'll be back tomorrow (Lord willing) with more inspiration.
