White Lace {ippity}

So...I wanted to do another 'lace' card for Karen's {ippity} challenge IHHC23, and I found a spool of lace in my stash. I love this lace, but can you believe that I have had this spool of 2 1/2" wide lace for over 30 years? Yup, I said it, I feel like a hoarder, but I have used it...it was a large spool...ha! I used 'pinks' on my card to also join in on the Wee Memories 'pink challenge #6' and also the City Crafter's challenge.

I used a 9" piece of my lace to make this lace flower on my card...I just love it! Here's where I found a tutorial at Honeybee Hill. I stamped the flowers from the {ippity} Now and Always set on white c/s, white embossed the flowers, and used the emboss resist technique to sponge in pinks, and then cut around the top of the flowers and adhered to the white b/g:
From Unity and {ippity} Projects
Stamps: {ippity} Now and Always
C/S: SU Pink Pirouette, GP White
Ink: SU Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, VersaMark
Accessories: Pink elastic ribbon, white lace, half pearls, white embossing powder, edge distressor tool

THANK YOU SO MUCH for stopping by, and have an {ippity} lace kind of day!
