Delight in the unexpected - FTTC #81

It's time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC81)! This week Maki Jones is our challenge host. Maki is challenging us to use lace. Whether you have real lace, lace punches, lace paper, or any other type of lacy item, add a bit of elegance to your cards this week with some lace. We would love to see what you create!

OK, that's an easy one, right? I decided to use some faux lace on my card today, using Flourishes gorgeous Lace Edges set. I pulled out this paper from Memory Box and stamped the image in Versamark, then heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. Then I stamped this sentiment, from Life Lines in Memento Rich Cocoa ink--I thought that was a fitting sentiment to go along with the faux lace, LOL! Finally, I added some flat backed pearls, a strip of ribbon and some tiny mother-of-pearl buttons that I've had forever. Very simple design, to show off that gorgeous embossed lace.

Here's a close up:

Be sure to go see how my team mates used lace today! I hope you'll play along with us! ~Supplies~
