Bloggers Challenge 209 Lace or Ribbon





























Good Morning, Today's challenge is a bit of a stretch for me because I don't do much lace. I guess I'm a very tailored person. I don't even own a piece of clothing with lace on it! This being said : ) I really wanted to challenge myself...and before I even had read the challenge I went out and bought some lace. All I had here was 2" or wider.

Very simple card Image is from Squigglefly and it is called Jack in the Pulpit. Background is one from TJers but I can't remember the name perhaps on of you ladies knows and wouldn't mind leaving it in my comments section. I traced around the outside edge with green copics and did the same with leaves only I colored them it. I wanted the illusion of a white flower. The lace was the hardest as it took for ever for me to tie ...I'm all thumbs ...especially with wider lace.





I did a second card also because I got my Bigshot machine and of course I had to play with it!! The sentiment is a rubber stampede stamp the embossed images are Cuttlebug embossing folders. The flowers were cut out from the folder. I guess this is my ribbon challenge.



Have a great weekend and a blessed week!!

The green card with the lace and single flower is so elegant, but the top one is a lot of fun, too! For someone who claims that this challenge was out of her element, you did an amazing job!

Beautiful cards--great use of ribbon and lace! I'm not a big lace user either, so this was definitely a challenge for me!
