Something lacy

This is another one of my lovely new stamps. I love the lacy look, it's going to be so versatile. I saw it coloured in this way in the Stampin' Up catty, so of course I had to try it. I wanted to keep the card really simple so that the beautiful lace flowers are the centre of attention.

I stamped and heat embossed the gorgeous lace pattern in white embossing powder onto vellum. I then used Blendabilities to colour the image on the back of the vellum. I die cut the "happy" from a scrap of light purple card. I also stamped the lacy flowers on the inside of the card and heat embossed in white for a subtle effect. 

I would like to link up with the following challenges:
Craft for the Craic - Birthdays or Anniversaries
Simply Create Too - Anything Goes
Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes
As You Like It - CAS or Fussy (CAS, because I love clean, in my mind it's harder to create CAS as it's unforgiving, whereas with fussy you can always cover up mistakes with new layers, embellishment etc).
Creative Knockouts - Floral Delight
Ruby's Rainbow - Soon be Spring
