Moxie Fab Challenge - Doily and Lace

Who doesn't love a little lace or doily on their cards? This card is for the Moxie Fab Challenge Diggin on Doilies and Lace.

I am loving the Starburst Lace stamp from Hero Arts. I decided to use the Hero Arts soft shadow ink Soft Lilac (Shadow Ink) for the background. The flowers are from Penny Black 3360K Curlicue stamp and stamped using Versafine Royal Purple ink.

The ribbon is glued down using tape gun and glue dots. I started with a stripe of glue across the front of the card. I folded it over and glue dotted it down and repeated across the front. Very time consuming and if I had an ounce of sewing skills probably would be a lot easier. :)

Thanks for stopping by...
