Pals Paper Arts Challenge

Hello Thursday and hello to a touch of warmer weather.  Yesterday, along with the past week, was quite brutal here in Alabama.  They let the schools out early due the threat of ice.   We did get some ice but not as bad as I thought it would be.  The good of all this cold weather, I got to stay inside and create.  I've been working on some Christmas presents for friends.  I also took some time to make a card for the Pals Paper Arts challenge this week...Get Your Lace in Place.

Here is the inspiration photo ...

Lace 2

Here is my take on using some lace on my card ...

Stamps:  I {heart} Hearts
Paper:  Real Red, Black, White
DSP:  Black
Ink:  Real Red, Black
Accessories:  brads (non SU), lace (non-SU), mat pack
  • The layout came from Gina K.'s  Stamp TV Sketch Spotlight (STVSKSP6).
  • I must admit that I am not a lace kind of person.  I dug through my mother's sewing stuff and found this red lace.  After playing with the lace, I liked the outcome of it.
  • I actually used my mat pack for the brad placements.  It took me a few minutes to realize that one of the brads is not centered on its prongs, therefore it looks crooked on my card.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get a chance to play over at the Pals lace challenge.  

Have a great day,
