Sunday Stampers - Lace

This week, Hels has chosen a Sunday Stampers theme of Lace and thanks to her, I've got Agadoo running round my head and I can't get rid of it - thanks, so much Hels!!

I was stumped for a while to make the theme, as I don't have any decent scraps of lace - a couple of small pieces that I couldn't work into anything so I decided to lace some ribbon instead.  (and I have to thank Julie Hickey for reminding me of the idea)

The stamp is by B Line Designs - and although I know I've had it a good two or three years, it was looking suspiciously unstamped....  I stamped it on a piece of white card with black versafine ink, and trimmed it to fit a square card - it's just short of 6 x 6 inches.  I used my Japanese screw punch to punch some holes for the ribbon and then rummaged in my ribbon box (it's now even untidier than when you saw it a couple of Wednesdays ago... if that's possible!) for some narrow ribbon.  As I could only find this baby blue, I decided to colour the lady's dress to match.  Good job I did it that way round...

I stuck the stamped image to my square card and ran some glitter glue round the edges.
