July Sisterhood Swap

Good morning!  I have my July Sisterhood of the Traveling Cards creation to share with you today.  Our dear sister Paola really handed us a challenge this month, and hopefully I managed to pull everything she listed together.  Let's see... our challenge was Victorian, something old or neglected, something new, something blue, and include lace.  Well, here's what I came up with:

So, for my something old and or neglected, I used some ribbon that I've had for a long time.  There's no particular reason I haven't used it, and the color was perfect with this background paper, from K&Co., which I've also had for who knows how long.  The something new was this stamp set from Stampin' Up!, and I used some of my new ink pads from SU, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso (love those!).  Of course, the blue and the lace are obvious on this card, and I think that I  fit  in all of the criteria for Paola's challenge for us.  Now to get these babies in the mail and on their way to Canada!!!

I'm so happy you could stop by today.  Make it a beautiful day, and do some happy stamping!

Love ya,
