Got to love lace!

Ahh thank you Daring Cardmakers for your wonderful new challenge! It says Lace and as soon as I saw the respective post, I knew what I'm going to occupy my hands with for the next hour!
Lace / ribbon is probably my favorite type of embellishment, so gleaming with joy, I produced some cards (how predictable of me :P)
The first one uses some interestingly shaped lace that I got from my mum. I love its look, but I wish I had it in some other colours too, so that I could use it more often. Unfortunately, it's one-of-a-kind, old lace that's probably older than me :)
As you can see, it works wonderfully as a frame:


I also made a nice and quick set below. Each card uses a different kind of lace: a delicate vintage one, a garter-style piece and a little flower. The cutout flower on "be mine" card has some serious amount of glitter on it, and sparkles beautifully. As usually, it can't be seen on the picture as I wish it would.


Hope you enjoyed them!
Thanks for stopping by,

  4. Lovely lovely cards. I'm not sure I could bring myself to use such treasured pieces of lace on a lanning to keep

  5. That blue lace is really nifty--don't you just love being able to use up bits and pieces and have it work out well?
