Ivory and Lace=Romance

Don't you think ivory and lace sounds romantic? I sure do. Colleen Dietrich is hostess for Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge #57 this week and that is what she asked for...I couldn't resist. After a steaming HOT day in the yard working, I thought it would be refreshing to go to the craft room

I've used a Cuttlebug Textile folder on PTI vintage cream cardstock. I did a little sponging on the bottom edge and distressed the top edge. My 'fly is a Martha Stewart deep edge punch called Monarch Butterflies. The pretty, delicate lace is from Jo-Ann Stores. Added a trio of mini prima roses and pearls on three of the butterflies. I'm using a sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers set called Hearts, Hearts, Hearts.
