Fluttering by with Lace

Hi and a very big welcome to my new follower Sandy of Simply Sandy. Thanks for popping by.

I've been having a crafty day today - most of which was just playing and trying out new ideas to use up my old stash. So here is my first play using a couple more of those 'country diary of an Edwardian lady' papers. From an old cardboard box I cut a square and covered with the first sheet. Then I cut a frame which I covered with the second sheet and stuck to the square (carefully matching up the papers). I added the verse using an IndigoBlu stamp, then decorated the frame using a Hunkydory butterfly, some gems and my last little snippet of white lace (just enough to go round each corner).

Must admit for a first attempt I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Butterfly challenge 'butterflies + L is for lace'
Pixie's Snippets Playground 'use snippets'
Scribble and Scrap challenge 'always anything goes'
My Craft Creations 'anything goes'

I'm off now to tidy up my mess and I'll be round to catch up with you all later. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Morning Andrea,

I'm trying to play catch up and typically Bloggers on one at the moment and not showing photos so just seen the thumbnail on my reading list, but looks like another beauty from there and I spy Poppies.
