This weeks challenge has been issued by Tammy and she has chosen 'Lovely Lace'..........just about the right timing in order to get your stash of Wedding cards prepped and ready for the season I reckon.
I quite like lace and I use it fairly often but this time I resisted my usual urge to slap a little on there and use as a border/ribbon/trim kinda thing (which I would like to make clear there is absolutely nothing wrong with and I'll be reverting back to this usual method of operation as soon as this challenge is over!)
Today I thought I should put in a little extra effort and actually use the lace as more of a feature.......isn't that the point of the challenge I hear you say.........well, yes.......it just takes me a little while to catch on.
Anyhow, here's my card:
I didn't really have a plan where this card was headed in production, other than to use the two main elements, so basically, that's what's on the card.
The lacy edged eyelet/ribbon combo......similar to the bodice of a dress (a dress for extra special occasions that is, nothing like the little backless number I'm wearing right now!)......
and the gathered crepe paper flower which makes good use of a little more of the lace.......
And that's about it.......just need a wedding to go to.
If you feel like joining in with this weeks challenge feel free to link up your creation over on the blog, and don't forget to check out the creations from the rest of the girlfriends.
I'll be back again tomorrow believe it or not.....3 days in a row, as it's Sketch Challenge today over on the Two Scrapbook Friends Forum, and although I should be posting that today, that would mean two posts in one day..........far too much for this blogger!
Have a great day, see you tomorrow,
