New challenge over at Our Vintage Affair - 3 laces

Over at Our Vintage Affair we have our May layout challenge starting - with the theme being lace!!!  3 different laces to be used in your layout.

I have used a lovely butterfly paper by Kaiser called Flutterbye, distressed and inked the edges with Vintage Photo.  I have just cut out the wings on the butterflies so that I can stand the wings up and curl them over slightly to add a little dimension ( I taped white paper behind the butterflies).  I have used a lace doily and added more lace to it around the outside.  My flowers have been made with the retro flower punch and in the centre of the largest flower I made a little lace flower to pop in the centre.  A few foliage die cuts were also used and here it is.

And here is the sketch designed by our own very talented DT - Elena to use.

I hope you will pop over and join in with the challenge - the challenge ends at 10pm on 20th May 2011.
