PPA73: A Little Lace

I am not a huge lace fan, but decided I would meet the challenge. This week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge is Get Your Lace In The Place and inspired by the picture below.
I initially had grand plans of using some dollies and getting to the look that way, but unfortunately I couldn't find the stash I had. So, this card really just started very simply and I added just a touch of lace at a border to really pull this off.  Stampin Up's new lace ribbon is perfect for that. It's almost like a retro vintage look all combined into one since I used the retired DSP from a few catalog's back. The sentiment which is stamped in Chocolate Chip on So Saffron is from a Level One hostess set from the current catalog, Afterthoughts. I added some more interest to the bottom with embossing with the dots folder.  I ended up with a really simple yet interesting thank you card, which you can always use.

Have some lace ribbon or better yet, some dollies. This is the perfect challenge to really start using those great embellishments. It's time to Get Your Lace in the Place.  Make a card/layout/3-d object and submit to the Pals Paper Arts Challenge, you could be the pick of the week.

Love that DSP with the touch of lace and texture! Simply gorgeous!

Beautiful! I love the Perfect Polka Dots texture...it coordinates so well with the DSP!

Very cute!

I'm proud you got out the lace . . . I don't use mine much either which is why I "cheated" with the pompom trim! Hugs, M

Nice job Kalshelia! You and I agree in the lace department. But at least you had lace to draw from! Your card is nice and cheery!

I love the way you used the lace. The dots and texture is beautiful. Hugs,

Love your card! The dsp goes great with the lace and ambossing! Love that you are getting some time to create again!

Just now catching up on some blogs. I really like your "lace" card, I'm not a fan of using lace either, but maybe after seeing yours I'll give it a try. Love that designer paper too.
