Paper Smooches Sparks Lace


I decided to try my hand at the challenge over at the Paper Smooches Sparks blog today. I just got some of my first Paper Smooches stamps this past week and I adore them! They are so cute!

Well, I am head over hills in love with birch bark right now. I know that's crazy, but it's true. While we were in the mountains out west, I took tons of pictures of just the bark on the birch and aspen trees. It's so pretty!! So when I saw this set of stamps with the little birch trees, there was no question about it, I had to have it! This is just one of many cards I've made with it. I'll post more later :) Anyway the challenge word was "Lace". I had a hard time trying to figure out how I was going to incorporate lace into my fall card with my little birch trees, but this is what I came up with. I kind of like it :) 

I stamped the lace first, added the panel of white, stamped the message, then popped up my cute little trees that I had colored with my Copics.  So fun! :)
