Challenge 8 at Out of a Hat-vintage lace

This week at Out of a Hat the challenge is to use vintage lace on your project. I haven't made any cards for a while so I thought it would be nice to make one for this theme.

Sandra sent me the beautiful lace when we first opened Out of a Hat and I have been waiting for a special time to use some of it. The clock, corner and butterfly stamps were free with the 2nd edition of 'Cardmaking in Easy Steps', together with a lot of other stamps and 212 card elements.I didn't count them but it said on the front of the magazine :). The picture of the lady was from a free vintage picture site and the bow I made in Paint Shop Pro.

Distressing around the edge tied it all together and I am quite pleased with it in the end. Then a few little pearls

Always lovely to craft with Janet, Sandra and Florence and see what they make for the challenges.

We all love to see people joining in with the challenges so we hope you will give it a go if you have time.

Love Chrissie xx
