ABC Challenges - "L is for Lace"

Good Morning Crafters, well here we half way through June, its amazes me how quickly this year has already almost reached Mid-Summer and where is it? I know we have lighter evenings but the temperature hasnt been to good so far, I do hope that we shall get some soon dont you? Anyway we have reached the letter "L" over on ABC Challenges and for this one we want to see lots of Lace on your cards and Im sure if your anything like me you have lots of it in your stash.
This time our Sponsors are The Paper Shelter, who as you know Im on their Design Team so I have the choice of any of their images to play with, but Im getting ahead of myself.

The Paper Shelter are offering a fabulous prize of $20 to spend in their webshop

And here is the Card I created for this "L is for Lace" Challenge

I have used "Rhythm Everywhere" and you will find her here, I have printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I cut her out with the oval Nestabilitie Die and stuck blue lace all around the edge.
I then cut a mount out of blue card with a fancy Nestabilitie Oval Die and stuck my image on to. The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of blue card the papers I have used are from "Sophie in the Country" digi paper set and you will find them here. I have used four of the papers and on three of the edges I have used the Martha Stewart Lace border punch and layered them up. I then laid a piece of spiderweb lace down the card and wrapped a piece of blue satin ribbon on top and attached them to the back of the first mount.
 Now that youve seen my Card I do hope that you will pay a visit to the ABC Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "L is for Lace" Challenge.
