Butterflies and Lace

Every time Mrs. A hosts a butterfly challenge I check it out and think, "Well, yeah, I can make a card to fit that theme" and then promptly don't.  It's not that I have anything against Mrs. A or butterflies; it is just that time and I aren't good buddies.
This time around, however, I already had the pieces of this card lying around waiting to be put together. I had the card base, the word topper, the hunk of lace and the dimensional sticker all set aside. I knew the card lacked something and once I saw the L is for Lace challenge I knew what was missing was a butterfly!
Since that card was so quick and easy I decided to make another one. I have several cards pieced out that aren't put together because they all lack something.  In the case of this second card the thing it lacked was the lace.  Again, Mrs. A to the rescue!

The Fine Print: The majority of card parts from Club Scrap (yep, still slogging away at old kits) "Spring Chorus" supplemented with dimensional stickers from K and Co.  The hunk of lace was in my desk drawer. I think it fell out of a completely different kit.

I love when a challenge trigger allows me to finish a card! I also have a *koff* drawer full of lace bits. Sometimes I even use them.

Good for you, Judy--2 cards for Mrs. A! Lace is one of my favorite embellishments, even though I seldom seem to use it on cards. These are really beautiful!
