Two Cute!


I'm very excited that my grandkids are in the air on their way here as I post this. Amidst getting ready for their visit, I did manage to make my card for this week's HM Monday Challenge. Since the theme this week is "Lace it Up", I tried to incorporate as much lace as I could. I stamped Sahara Sand with SU's Victorian Lace in Craft White. I then colored my mice in the shoe and punched holes to put real laces in. I used a "cord", or ribbon, (not sure what it actually is) that I purchased some time ago that is 80% Acrylic and 20% Linen, and I died it on my Pretty in Pink ink pad. I used Crystal Effects around the shoe eyelets and the end of the "shoe lace". I used my scalloped Nestability to cut and emboss the circle in Blush Blossom and then ran it through the Cuttlebug again to get the Swiss Dots. I used 6 pink eyelets and laced ribbon through them. The sentiment is from SU's By Ones and By Twos. The edge piece was punched with Martha Stewart's lace punch, sponged lightly with Sahara sand and embellished with half pearls in Blush, as are the corners and the sentiment. I'm loving these pearls and I have purchased several colors from Flourishes. Hope you like how I "laced it up". I'm happy with how it turned out and I can't wait to see all the other entries. Happy Wednesday!
