High Hopes Challenge #16

Hi everyone:
I hope your start to the first week of February was a good one.
Here in Southwestern Ontario, our Wiarton Willy (a crazy little groundhog) didn't see his shadow today. Which means 6 more weeks of winter. The only good thing is that the little fellow is only right 39% of the time!! So I am keeping with my thoughts of spring!

This is my card for the HHC #16. The challenge was to use lace on our card.
This adorable stamp is Hanna's Heart. The card is a gate fold.
I embossed her with black and painted her with Tombows. I sewed the lace to the bg square. I stamped, embossed and cut out the purple flower and all the butterflies and layered them. The large brad is the closer for the card front. The flowers were punched from the same bg paper and layered and I added some little pearls. I also added lots of stickles, my favorite embellishment! I used small pieces of black wire for the antenna on ther butterflies.

 


I added this second pic to show you how it looks open.
I hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by.....
