So Special Someone card with Cluny Lace

Hey folks, it's Holly posting today.  I hope you are having a great week.  I've got a romantic, lace-filled card to share with you today.

I started with a vanilla card front and I adhered a piece of the gorgeous dark rose patterned paper from the Magnolia Grove paper pad to that.  Next, I took three strips of gray cardstock and embossed them with the Bricks and Bark M-Bossabilites folder.  To bring out the raised edges, I rubbed a vanilla ink pad across the gray strips.  I glued these to the patterned paper, keeping to the left side of the card because I knew I wanted to add my sentiment to that side.  Some Ivory Cotton Cluny lace was wrapped around the card front and adhered to the back.  I then glued this card front to a gray card base.

For my sentiment, I cut a Lacey Circle from some vanilla cardstock.  I stamped the elegant circle border from the Hugs and Kisses Sentiments stamp set (JustRite) in the center of the Lacey Circle.  I stamped the sentiment from the Birthday Sentiments set on some vanilla cardstock and cut it out with a circle die and then adhered that to the center of my stamped border.  The sentiment was affixed to the card with some Joy Foam Pads (small).

I absolutely love the lace in the Classy Cards 'n Such store.  I bought some of this Ivory Cotton Cluny lace last year, and I loved it so much, I bought the Sampler package so I could get my hands on all the different kinds.  If you love lace like I do, I recommend getting the assortment package to start with.  I know I'll be going back for more of this gorgeous lace - I can't seem to stop using it!  :-)
The Cluny lace Holly used is so gorgeous!  It also comes in black.
