Papercraft Star #143

Our challenge this week at Papercraft Star is all about Lace & Polka Dots.  The timing could not have been better.  I just received a yummy pack of October Afternoon embellishments in the mail....which had the lovely lace trim that you see above! Here is the inspiration photo, which is use if you choose!

My card is based on the sketch challenge this week at Retro Sketches.  I followed the basic design and added my lace trim to the top panel.

My lace trim came in a single row....I layered three rows to mimic the bedskirt in the inspiration photo.  I really like the soft look that it gives to the card.

I left the inside blank to use as a notecard.  I stamped my bird cage in second generation ink to give it a soft look.

Supplies Used:
B1420 Hello Tweety Stamp Set-Close To My Heart
1385 White Daisy Cardstock-Close To My Heart
Wisteria Wonder Paper, Ink-Stampin Up
Wisteria Wonder Baker's Twine-Stampin Up
