A Spoon Full of Lace -

Today is Tuesday and that is Spoon Day! The theme for today is Lace - and I had thought I would do a vintage old fashioned card with lots of lace - and then I got some new stamps from Alota Rubber Stamps and they were so fun I just had to go vibrant with this one!


Alota has brought out a whole bunch of new bug images!!!!! The bug we all love is back doing some wonderful things - just wait until you see the chocolate covered bugs! No really these are so cute! But for my first card with the new stamps these flowers just drew me in so "Sunflowers for Grace" was a must.

I colored with my Copics.. over and over - lots of layers. I love the deep rich colors when you do this.

For my card I started with a white card stock, then added a background of the gorgeous deep red card stock from Papertrey Ink - their colored card stock is so vibrant - and very heavy in weight. The green is a really pretty flower paper that was in my scraps - LOL not that you can see the flowers... I added the Doily Lace Martha Stewart in white to pop on that red. The ribbon is also from Papertrey - made to match LOVE THAT! Then it was time for my "main" lace for the challenge - I cut the lace flower ribbon to fit around the image (oh I matted the image with a piece of the red) that way it would show through the lace. I love how it looks like a lace frame around the image. I then added the stickles to the bug wings and used my scraps to decorate the inside (which I forgot to take a photo of)... I really love this one - I have been seeing so many red and white cards lately and I really do love them.


Hope you will give this weeks Spoon full of Sugar challenge a try! The prize is from Stampavie baby!!! :0) And you must take a moment to see the other DT cards seems we all love lace!


Hubby is taking off today we are going to mow and work around the house. Didn't get everything done yesterday... guess that was cuz we stopped at 2pm to have our BBQ ;0) But hey all work and no fun make me... well just plain grouchy!

Have a wonderful Tuesday - Hugs and
