Bah Humbug Challenge 30

Week 30 at Bah Humbug which means I have at least that many cards ready for this year - thanks girls for the ongoing ideas and inspirations. The plan this week is to use lace in some form and I immediately thought of Joanna Sheen's Victorian Christmas CD and actually couldn'f find an image which included any lace but I selected a vintagey (is that a word?) one and matching background paper then added some punched lace instead using a Martha Stewart punch.  I added a die cut corner and poinsettia using Marianne dies and that's it - a card with lace.


  1. A beautiful card Val, using 2 of my favorite dies. I must start thinking of making more Christmas cards, or I will have them all to make in a rush a week a so before December.

  6. I agree with Paula, picking up on that lovely shade of blue really enhances the imagery. A beautiful card altogether and wonderful take on the challenge.
