SOS76 - lacy blues

Time for another true confessions challenge here at Shopping Our Stash!  For our 76th challenge, we want to see what you create with something that was your best (or just really good) deal ever or something you just had to buy because it was on sale!
here is my card

I found a gallon size bag stuffed with lace in a garage sale earlier this year and I just have to get it - it was only $3! So now I'm stocked with lace for life, so I better start using it.
You've probably seen the blue flower before - it also uses some of the lace stash. I got tens of metres of white ruffled lace - so I cut it to smaller pieces and died it with different shades of Glimmer Mist. Then I layered and adhered them onto white CS and finished the top with seam binding died to similar shade of blue.



Challenges:
Fussy and Fancy - flowers and pearls
Card Makin Mamas - anything goes
