The lace is 9cm wide and so lush. I bought it at Wild Orchid Crafts where I buy all of my flowers. I have laced lilac ribbon through the center. It was just begging for something to go there. My background paper is from a HOTP paper pack that I bought at least 6 years ago. I have so much paper and card that I sometimes forget the old gems I have stashed away. If you click on the picture, you will be able to see the lilac flat back pearls that I have added to the lace.
I made the frame to go round my image by inking with milled lavender distress ink. I then debossed a swirly pattern on to it using a Cuttlebug embossing folder that I had inked with Duty Concord distress ink. I added a bit more dusty concord to finish it off. The snowflake stamp is one that I got free with a magazine last year. I have used clear iridescent glitter glue on the snowflake and around the edge of the frame, but for some reason it turns up green in my photo. I have also added ivory flat back pearls to the snowflake.
I will be entering this card into the following challenges:-
