Bah! Humbug! Lace Challenge



This week the challenge as Bah! Humbug! is to use lace. I was excited because I've been hoarding this gorgeous vintage lace I'd received from my dear friend, Joy and this seemed the perfect opportunity. I thought it paired well with the beautiful laser cut sticker I'd also been hoarding from another dear friend, Leah. Thanks you guys, love ya both! The sticker was on a piece of craft color backing, and I liked the combination so much that I cut Kraft paper to use on my card.


For some reason, the K&Co chipboard sentiment really didn't show up in the first pic, so here's a close up. It's layered on a scrap tag I'd cut with my Cricut, that was laying on my desk and the kraft piece behind it is the back side of a tag that came with my vintage seam binding from Prairie Bird Boutique. Way to recycle, go me! This is the last of my really late B!H! cards for awhile. Check back Friday for a surprise, and if you're quick about it, you can still join in on this week's lace challenge too. WooHoo! I'm also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Christmas in August Challenge.

  13. I'm so glad you took the lace and laser-cut out of "hoarding" because they are beautiful and need to be shared! Perfect combination for this project and the Peace medallion looks so 3-D. I've got to get back into the swing of things... I slept for most of 2 days after the wedding, then popped my lower back and have been gimping around like and old lady for the past 3 days. Ugh! And here it is a week out from the wedding already! Thanks for always being such an inspiration!
