365 Cards - #160 - Lovely Lace

I am playing catch up today over at 365 Cards because I have been so sick. Now you all know what my day 161 was like very plain and simple so I thought I would make up for it today and go the extra nine yards so to speak. This challenge was all about adding lace to your card and I decided to cut up one of my vintage lace doilies that I purchased from an antique shop for this very purpose. I have about 6 doilies sitting in my stash of varying sizes and types. I went for the layered look which I adore and all sorts of textures. I hope you enjoy my card today.

This is it until later on today as it is Super Sketchy Sunday on 365 Cards later on. As a matter of fact it is already on the blog but I am keeping Mum about it because I get it first over here in Australia lol. But be warned girls you are gonna love it!!! I'm just saying is all!
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

Lovely French vintage card! Sounds like you're getting around somewhat more. School is starting here and we are more worried about H1N1 than what we're teaching. That is a first for all the years I've been in education. Take care.
