LOVELY LACE

Janis at PAUSE,DREAM,ENJOY is having a Crafty Playtime linky party Use Lace. I decided to get out my crochet hook and make a lacy flower and trim.  It has been a while since I followed a pattern. The paper is K & Company.  The card shape die is Sizzix.  I haven't added a sentiment.  Thought I would use it for a friendship or sympathy card.  No embellies on this one either.  I really wanted to showcase the lace. I am also linking up to LITTLE SCRAP PIECEs "Show it Off Saturday" linky party and to DL. Art Thankful Thursday Linky Party
