Holiday Hugs and Kisses With Lace Doily



Tried something new today. I saw a tutorial on Joan Ervin's blog here: on lace sponging. Joan said you can also use a punched border but I thought I would try a doily because I couldn't find one piece of lace. Ugh! I placed it over my corner and sponged with Memento Desert Sand ink. I thought it made a nice corner.

My card is for these challenges: JustRite to use dark red, black, and ivory. Also make your own embellishment, ex: diecut, crocheted flower, etc. Mine is
the doily I sponged and my die cut. Challenge #036

Just Us Girls #51 here Use green, red, and black-color challenge

Secret Crafter Saturday:This challenge is 'Anything Goes'. You have to love that.

Stamp: JustRite - A Merry Little Christmas set
Paper: SU Cherry Cobbler, SU Very Vanilla, Black cs from Hobby Lobby, unknown dp
