SISC 37 - Luscious Lace

I know that these are CHALLENGES but they really have been challenging me to think outside the norm lately. This weeks challenge at Stamp Insanity is Luscious Lace, The Fabric of Our Lives. I never use lace or fabric on my cards. Not sure why, just never have. So I stopped down at Altered Art and Scrap Playground and picked up a package of lace. I also picked up some great paper by We R Memory Keepers. Here's my card featuring both the lace and the fun new paper.
The paper is from the Merry January line. It's a B side paper. This sheet is called Flake. Fitting isn't it? The back side has 4 6x6 squares and the 1 I used for the matting is Slush.
 I used cute little Maddie from the Holiday Princess set (set photo posted below). I inked all the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I used some Stickles on the flame of the candle and some white epoxy on the candle.
 I had some of these snowflakes laying around from a few years back (so old the adhesive fell off) that were silver glitter that I inked with Vintage Photo and Broken China Distress Ink. I popped the Vintage Photo snowflake with some pop dots.
Don't forget to check out the rest of the Groovy Girls to see their amazing creations!

Hiya Chelsea, aww this is sweet. You did a wonderful job with the lace. I'm one that don't always use flowers on my cards - mainly cos I think I'm rubbish at it. Lace and ribbon though I love.

Awesome job.
