Crafty Cardmakers: Stitching AND Lace

Hi, friends! We've got another fortnightly challenge for you up at Crafty Cardmakers and our hostess is Lin!!!  We're looking for creations that have STITCHING AND LACE.  The stitching can be real or faux, but you MUST have both elements to be within challenge parameters!

We are sponsored again by
As a family business we're a friendly, helpful, bunch at Hobby Art.  All our stamps are designed by us and manufactured in Britain. Look at the gallery on my blog - - for lots of card ideas using the Hobby Art range. 
We're pleased to sponsor the Crafty Cardmakers Challenge and look forward to seeing the entries.   Good luck everyone.  Jenny and all. X
 Here's my card~


I decided to use up some of my Pink Paislee stash and some Prima rhinestones to create this card.  I LOVE the way it turned out!  The bright colors are fresh and happy...and I only had to use black ink for stamping which made this card relatively easy to make!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!  Please join us and say hi to the other gals on the DT--we've got some new ones!!!  Happy stamping! :)

Lovely soft colours Mynnette. Your BP is perfect for the image.

ok...there goes that stupid blogger again not showing me your posts until one popped up today. Then I see I've missed a ton...ugh!

This is a dreamy little card! Love the pretty DP and the sparkly gems. The black lace is a nice accent to the stamped image.
