Once Upon a Time.....

This week's challenge over at A spoonful of Sugar is to use lace! Which is fab because I just love lace anyway. I had to make a wedding card for this week-end so what better time than now!! I also based my card (loosely) from Bea's sketch for this week. I couldn't mat my image in an oval because the image was sent to me by an angel!! (wink, wink ~ thanks again so much!!) I decided to use this pretty paper from K & Co. but the strip in the middle isn't even showing that much!! What is showing looks identical to the base!! Oh well! But it does have pink and green on it!! (LOL) If you can'`t tell I absolutely love this sentiment circle stamps and have had some comments about where to get them! I bought them at Catslife Press. They have such fabulous stamps.

Paper: K & Co.
Inks: distress inks and twinkling h20's
Accessories: Lace ~ JoAnn's, flowers ~ Prima, buttons ~ stash

Well I hope everyone had a better day out than here!! It rained cats and dogs out all day!! I guess it is supposed to be that way all week!! I hope it clears by Saturday for the wedding we are to attend! Thanks so much for your visit!!
