DCM - Lacy days of summer

I can hardly believe it but I have made a card this week! I decided it was time to get back into the swing of things with the DCM DT so I've joined in with the new dare which is set by the lovely Kathy :o)

I'd just like you to interpret Lace in your card-making this week in whatever way you like, you could use the actual word, stamp or cut a lacy design or maybe use one of these dictionary definitions to inspire you: 1. a net-like ornamental fabric made of threads by hand or machine. 2. a cord or string for holding or drawing together, as when passed through holes in opposite edges. 3. ornamental cord or braid, esp. of gold or silver, used to decorate uniforms, hats, etc. 4. a small amount of alcoholic liquor or other substance added to food or drink.

I've totally wimped out and just used lace on my card. I was tempted back into crafting by these lush papers from DCWV. They are from the green stack which is 70% recycled paper :o)
Card blank - Craftwork Cards
Lace from stash
Happy birthday tile - magazine freebie
Everything else DCWV the green stack

I'm so chuffed to see you back - I've missed you - reading your blog and seeing your fab cards. It's lovely to see you crafting again.
Love the card - that paper does look lovely, I might have to look out for that - I don't have much paper as you know.
love the image and the cute flowers too
