I love Lace

Good evening,

I wanted to share with you my first project using the I Love Lace stamp.  This stamp is truly gorgeous and as soon as I saw it, knew exactly how I could use it on a project I had been thinking about.

This card is for a family member who will soon be undergoing reconstruction surgery following breast cancer.  This has been a well thought out decision (surgery - not my card!) which has been one heck of a journey for her.  She has many reasons for choosing reconstruction and I know she will also be looking forward to wearing a pretty bra again.  I hope this card celebrates that aspect without taking away how amazing and brave she is.

My card uses Strawberry Slush card and ribbon with a black ink for the lace.  Basic pearl jewels embellish it.  The bra cups were made using the scallop circle die.

My best wishes to you all, wherever you are and whatever your journey.
