Shabby Chic with Lace

 My NZ swap group theme this month was "Use Lace" - it could be real, paper lace, lace stamp or dies/punches.    

I decided to go a bit shabby chic.   I found some beautiful patterned paper that had a lace design on it. I added some lace along the top and bottom.  Many years ago I got a roll of lace - around 250 metres - enough to last at least 2 lifetimes!   I used some double sided tape to put it down and then added some glitter which stuck to the little bits of tape showing.  I added some glue in odd spots and sprinkled with more glitter.   I added a ephemera butterfly that I had blended over some brown ink.   Added a foiled sentiment and some gold gems.

It's nice to try different types of cards and although I'm a more CAS card maker, I was pleased with the results of this.

This is even better IRL - I am enjoying having it on my desk where I see it often

The lacy strips add the perfect shabby chic, Dawn - love the blue butterfly too!!
