Wild Flower Wednesday: Lace and Sparkle

Lace and sparkle is the challenge this week at The Wild Flower Patch blog.  My normal style is quite far from lace and sparkle and this week’s challenge was indeed a challenge.  I figure if I can make a grunge-ish card then I can use lace!  I ended up adding some sparkle to the flower centers with a glue pen and some Martha Stewart glitter. 

I’m also entering this card in the Moxie Fab challenge Let’s do Vintage and Shabby.

Without further ado…

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday!


Supplies: Rustic White Cardstock (Papertrey Ink), Copic Markers. I used pattern paper from October Afternoon and I’m not sure if it’s Fly a Kite or Thrift Shop since I’ve got them all mixed up. The lace came from my LSS and I failed to note the manufacturer. Oh, and I finally used my Tea Dye Distress Ink that’s been hanging around the craft room forever—I edged text pattern paper with it.


  1. Really pretty Annie, love the paper mix!
