Mark' Finest Paper Challenge 70-Black Eyed Susan

Today's Challenge at Speedy the Cat Friend's challenge is to use "lace" on your card. I used Mark's Finest Papers Black Eye Susan for Encouragement Stamp. The sentiment is from Sand Surf Relax. What a fun challenge. I love lace on cards. For my card I used Martha Stewart's Punch Around the Page Vintage Lace. There is also some real lace trim on the card that I found at Walmart. The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch. The pearls I received in a RAK.

You know, I don't use stick pins much on my cards. Can you believe I actually figured out how to attach this cute little charm with them. It is a much cooler was to attach the charm then by hooking it on the ribbon. The charm stays straight so you can actually see it.


Here is a picture of my decorated envelope with my easel card. Sure hope you can join us this week for the challenge. Remember you have a chance to win a fabulous Mark's Finest Papers Stamp by entering. Have a great weekend and stay safe for those of you in the path of Hurricane Irene!
