A lacy challenge

Good Sunday morning & Happy February!! Who else is happy to wave goodbye to January?? Oh, & it's Superbowl Sunday.....another exciting element to the day! And to round it out, today is High Hopes challenge day!! Challenge #16...... to use lace on your card. Hmmm.....it's come to my attention that I have NO lace....none....nada....so I asked permission to just use my lace punch, & I got the ok!!!



For my card I used Lilly the Spring Fairy.....because BOY am I anxious for spring. Wayyyy too much white in my backyard right now!! I colored her with Prismas & gamsol, & added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to her wings. I thought the Basic Grey Sultry pad was perfect....very springy. I know, I said I was trying to use paper OTHER than Basic Grey.....but my fingers just walk towards my stash each time, what can I say? I used my Nesties to make the ovals & rectangle, use the Martha Stewart lace border punch on both the Pink Passion layer & the Basic Grey layer.....& added 3 Dew Drops to the 2 corners. There ya go....a lacy card!! Be sure to check out the High Hopes blog to see what the other Divas created....nothing less than spectacular, as usual!!



You may not have noticed, because it's so itty bitty.....but my counter made the leap past 20,000 recently. I'm so excited & so grateful to all my readers! I am putting together some blog candy to celebrate......it's taking me a bit.....I may be celebrating 21,000 hits instead, but that's ok :) Stay tuned for more info, & thank you to all of you who visit!! Hope you have a fantastic first day of February!!!

EDITED TO ADD: I think I need a new camera. I'm having a tough time getting clear pictures. I retook the picture this morning, so this picture is different than the one on the High Hopes blog. My camera really doesn't seem to like pinks or reds.....or purples...lol. Maybe I just need to take a photography class!!

Michelle! Wow, your card is so sweet! I love the tiny floral on the dp and the lacey edges you punched on both the pink and floral layer. The scalloped ovals look fantastic against the deep pink scalloped rectangle. I love the distressing on the green oval too. Of course your coloring is superb, I love the blending you did and how you left the highlights. Nice sparkle on the wings! Sweet touch to add the jewels in the two top corners. Your card is SO pretty!

Sawwweeeetttt.. This is so cute.. I love the way you colored her.. Lace makes me think of little girl dresses..I think that cameras in general do not like reds.. Not sure why. Stay warm...
Hugs.
