Lace and more….

It seems an age since I entered a Crafty Individuals challenge and when I saw the theme was Lace, buttons, bits and bobs I was delighted, as I have a lot of these lying around on my craft desk!
I decided that Kraft card was to be my base and stamped it randomly with the background stamp(CI430)that is definitely my favourite(I do believe you may have seen it a few times already this year)
I used some wavy corrugated card from the croissants we buy occasionally on top of that and then stamped some script and linen effect stamps over a piece of scrap paper - also lurking on the outer reaches of my desk!
The image which has the lovely title - 'Dancing till 1 o'clock'(CI346) was stamped onto some card and mounted onto more of the card stamped again with the background stamp(CI430)
I added a corner from a set from The Works and some lace and a bit of pearly lace. The flowers were cut down a bit and the labels are from a stamping session I had over Christmas when I just wanted to DO something!
A little bit of added stamping, a little bit of silky scarf and I was done!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Is this a journal page or a card? Boy it could go either way. Your make IS a dance. Every bit and bob looks like it was made just for each other for this project. Gorgeous design - so vintage. Can you tell I like it a lot!

Chris, I love your neutral palette, yet it is so feminine. I also am a big fan of letting what's on my worktop at the moment dictate my design. You have used all these wonderful goodies and whipped them into a fabulous layout! I especially love the little detail of the birds and butterfly! Big hugs! PS I hope you are doing well!

Your creation exudes timeless elegance and is so utterly feminine.
I had to smile as I also have that wooden corner embellishment. The Works can sometimes be a wee treasure trove of goodies!
So glad you joined the fun at the Crafty Individuals challenge.
Good Luck Wishes
