It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC81)! This week Maki Jones is our challenge host. Maki is challenging us to use lace. Whether you have real lace, lace punches, lace paper, or any other type of lacy item, add a bit of elegance to your cards this week with some lace. We would love to see what you create!

This card is also for this week's SCS Color Combo Challenge(CC285)!  Pacific Razzleberry Olives!  Check out the link to find out about the dessert option!  Notice that I added lots of Pacific Point somewhat less of old olive, and just two tiny touches of rich razzleberry.  I always love to play around with color ratios, too. 

I am using Flourishes Ferns and Fiddles and Kids Play stamp sets.  This card is CAS for me. I combined it with my "go to" CAS sketch from last summer.  This card is also for today's Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger Inspiration:  Light and Bright!  Everything from the Pacific Point blue with the couch and the ocean to the two little rich razzleberry butterflies.  Totally light and bright!   I was trying to go for a manly card, but at the last minute I added the rosettes( they are in blue) and butterflies(not very manly).  I did add the lace and velvet combination ribbon.  I added my silver pearls which are a faux metal brad to me. They are metallic.   I think they still could go for manly depending on how they are used.  This complies with The Shabby Tea Rooms #24 metal and inspiration picture.  The colors in that bracelet are very similar, too.  Hmmm.  I am also playing Stamptacular Sunday Challenge!  Twos better than one! This is also for Mark's Finest Papers a Harvest card!  I used ferns and rich regal colors to convey my harvest look! 

Check out the other blog team designers to see what they created with lace!
