Racey Lacey !

Happy Thursday dear blogging friends, hope you're having a great one.

Today we have a new challenge starting on Cute Card Thursday - Challenge #172 with the theme  'Racey Lace'.  We want to see lace on your creations and our prize sponsor for this week is The Stamp Shoppe.  Hop over to the blog to check out all the fabulous creations from the DT for inspiration.

For my DT card I decided to focus on the 'Racey' part of the theme with just a touch of  added lace !! 

This Kenny K image 'Bodacious Bev' was a free digi image on the CD included with Complete Cardmaking magazine.  I have this card in mind for someone who has a 'special' birthday coming up real soon !

I coloured Bev with Copics, cut her out with a plain oval Nestie, then added this over a scalloped oval cut from shiny black cardstock.  I used a Martha Stewart border punch to add a lacey edging to the pink strip she is sitting on before adding a length of pretty black lace over the top. 

She has Glossy Accents on her boots, but this isn't showing up too well on the main pic, so I've included a close up shot which shows the glossy effect a little more clearly.

The sentiment is from Crafty Individuals and cut out with a heart die from a Nellie's Choice set.  The lacey pink heart was cut using a large die from the same set.  Background paper was from my stash and I added pink Stickles around the edges of the image layer and heart shaped sentiment.

I'm looking forward to seeing your creations for this challenge, hop over to the CCT blog and add a direct link to your card to be in with a chance of winning this week's prize.  Let's see what you make of this theme!

I really like this image, cos it can be used for all sorts of cards. I find most of the kenny k's fantastic images are a bit too risque for granny or aunty, but great for dad and uncle. You have made this card very classy and chic with pnk and black. hugs from heidi x
