I've joined a card lifting group on Fiskateers. Once a week, we get a card to lift. It's interesting -- the two cards that have been chosen to lift are definitely not my type. So although it's fun, it's also making me go out of my comfort zone, as far as card making goes, and try new things. But that's kind of why I joined the group in the first place -- you get inspiration and you try to use your imagination and creativity as much as possible, so your card doesn't look like an exact replicate of the card we are lifting.
So anyway, here's one I made today. It's pretty simple (but then so was the card we lifted! LOL) but it actually did take me quite a long time to come up with anything! In fact, I had to try a second time, 'cause I wasn't impressed with my first version I came up with.
What do you think???
I've entered this card into a challenge at Cute Card Thursday. They're looking for Material added to a card -- I think the lace here counts! :) I won this lace at Reasonable Ribbon Ramblings awhile back, and have been trying to come up with ideas of how to use it on a card or layout. This is the first card where adding this lacey ribbon has worked! :)
also added it to the Paper Play Challenge -- In Stitches
