Use Your Stuff Challenge #213


I've been asked to be part of the team over on 'Use Your Stuff' challenge blog and I couldn't be happier.  I have SO MUCH STUFF that this is exactly what I need to blow the dust off some of this stuff and get busy creating.  LOL!

The new team members were only debuted today but you know me ... Mrs. Impatient ...
so I just JUMPED RIGHT in and create a card to share.

This week's theme is:  Ribbon, Twine, Lace

I chose lace and twine for today's creation.

I've had a few sheets of vintage images that I purchase a good while back from PION design called 'From Grandma's Attic - tinted'.  They are all just adorable and I was also able to use some of the free design paper I received in a Quick Cards magazine called 'Parisian Dreams'.

I thought the pink in these little ladies dresses went perfectly with this paper and the little touches of green leaves in the paper determined my matting/accent color.  

If this is a new challenge blog to you as it was to me not so long ago,
please come check it out and by all means PLAY ALONG!!  
The rules are simple . . . follow the theme and USE YOUR STUFF!
