Just a Little Lace

I'm not exactly sure how I feel about this card. I was trying to make a dress out of a scalloped circle. Someone told me it looks like a scroll, lol maybe it does a little. This was a scalloped circle from Gypsy Wanderings that I cut for a different card and didn't end up using. I didn't want to throw it away, so I tried this. I just cut out a few pieces till it looked like a dress (or so I though). The silver background is actually wrapping paper that I bought at Ikea a few years ago never used. I added the alphabet stickers that I picked up from the dollar bin at JoAnn's  and used some lace strips off a tank top that I was throwing out because it was damaged.
The black card stock I bough from Michaels a long time ago, and it was already embossed. I've had it so long I almost got rid of it. I promised my hubby I would cut down a little on the stash of stuff, and I really am trying. Which is why I'm going to post another give away soon. I've gotta pair down!

There's also a linking party going on at ScrappingMamma's! Join up.

Happy Crafting.
