Ribbons and Lace

Ribbons...got 'em! Lace...humm...thankfully I had some left in my stash from the 100 yen store in Japan! I am not so much a lace user and I am not sure why. It is pretty and adds a fun touch. Maybe I don't want to fall in love with it because if I do, undoubtedly I will try to hoard it. ;)

The challenge this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments was to use Ribbons and Lace. I chose to pair it with a new stamp set I got from Sale A Bration, Bliss. So, since this was a new, never been inked set, it also met my challenge requirements at Use It Tuesday! Yay for twofers! (Which I stole from my friend, Lisa!)

Stamps: Bliss (SU)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink
Ink: Versamark, Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: SU Ribbon, Lace, Adhesive Pearls, Liquid Pearls, Buttons, Linen Thread
, CM corner rounder

Happy Valentine's Day! I hope your day is full of chocolate, love, and chocolate. :)

You beautifully used those new images (haven't even seen the Sale A Bration sets yet....wow!) and I LOVE the idea of your new challenge blog!!! I have gotten so much satisfaction in using supplies that I've been hoarding for so long lately. As fantastic and drool worthy and hoard worthy as so much of the new stuff is, I ran out of room for it eons ago. So using up a bit (to make room for new stuff, of course) sounds fantastic! :>
