Get Inspired - Lace

Hi Everyone!  Its Inspiration Saturday and its my turn to contribute some ideas to the Get Inspired page at MFP Speedy TV.

For the last year or so I've been really into knitting, and last summer I dabled in knitting lace.  The great thing about lace is that it is light weight, a bit challenging, and when you are done the end result looks amazing. Spring is coming (or so they say) so I've been thinking about a lace project I might want to work on as the weather gets nicer.  As a result I've been looking at lace pictured on Pinterest (surprise!).  I don't think I would want to knit this, but it's really cool and pretty:

I Just love this!  You can find the link to the pin here.  Here is what I came up with:

I used two  Mark's Finest Papers' stamp sets - "Birds of the Orient" for the inside and "Birdcages" for the outside.

I created the card by die cutting the card base and the main panel, and dry embossing some vellum.  The sentiments were heat embossed and the card was assembled.  I added some ribbon, rhinestones, and white gel pen to finish things off.

This was a fairly simple card to make, but I think its really pretty. Are you inspired to create?  If so why not let us know what you make in the comments below. In the meantime don't forget to go to the Get Inspired page at MFP Speedy TV next week to see MariLynn's take on the  image I've chosen!

As I mentioned before, this post is part of the  Get Inspired page at MFP Speedy TV .   If you are not a member of MFP Speedy TV, its a free social networking site focused on stamping and cardmaking with MFP stamps.  In additon to our column you will find lots of inspiration, including other informative columns on a daily basis, so why not click over and see what you are missing!
