Pear Tree Designs - Challenge #44 - Lace

Thank you to everyone who joined in with our sketch challenge last week, and congratulations to the winner Darling Ho. Get in touch with Donna to arrange your prize!

This week over at Pear Tree Designs the challenge is LACE - we want to see you add some lace to your creation any which way you like, aslong as there is some lacey love on there!!

The sponsor this week is

.. with the prize of A BIG SELECTION OF RIBBONS up for grabs.

Here is my DT take on the challenge this week

Is this not the prettiest CD you've ever seen? It certainly wouldn't play any music but it makes a cute home decor item for Christmas. Not only have I been trying to get on top of making Christmas cards, but I have been trying my hand at Christmas decorations too. This is one of the first, how'd you like it?

Of course, I had to use Beanie Anya.. again.. and paper piece her.. again. I can't help myself. It's not like I don't have any other Christmas stamps, infact, I have loads. I'm just a sucker for The Greeting Farm!! I have used Basic Grey Jovial papers and doilies, along with a Tim Holtz ticket and some snowflakes I cut with my slice.

I would like to enter this creation into these challenges:
× Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Cut it Out [Paper piecing]
× CCEE Stampers - Add a Doily

× Crafty Senitments - Glitter
× Crafty Purple Frogs - Shape with Us
× Your Next Stamp Challenge - Stitching
× Belli Challenge - Think Seamstress [I sewed the lace to the paper]

Thanks for stopping by, hop on over to Pear Tree Designs and check out what the rest of the DT have made with LACE. xo
