Growing by Giving


Welcome to our first Noon-Time Challenge this week at Flourishes!  Today's challenge....simply use lace on your card or creation!  Playing along with us enters you to win the beautiful sets of the day at Flourishes!  


I've done some soft embossing to showcase the lace and the mother and child silhouette in this pretty card.  As you can probably see, I've embossed the circular frame on vellum.  


Because vellum has a coating it's easy to use regular waterbased dye ink and still emboss it, it dries slowly so it works perfectly.  I've added the vellum sentiment overtop of the silhouette layer giving you the feeling of a soft shadow underneath.  


I've added the beautiful lace background stamp on the Pool Party layer and then added that gorgeous lace from the Flourishes store, as well as some beautiful narrow velvet that fits perfectly through the Picot Edge Circle Spellbinders and the lace, and then finally,  Kaiser Sparklets as accents.
