Mo's DP2 Challenge "Lace" theme


Happy Monday to everyone!  I have a funny story to share before I show you the card I am entering in this week's DP2 challenge.  I had to go to the eye doctor this morning and of course I had to get my eyes dilated.  Well, for those of you who have had this done you know that sunshine isn't your friend.  Today is extra sunny (especially for February) here in Michigan and I feel like a mole squinting my eyes and trying to see my computer.  Therefore, if there are any mispelled words, punctuation errors or anything wacky about this posting, please know that it is because I can barely see. lol

Okay, today I am working with Mo's beautiful Senorita Flamenco dancing girl.  I love this image because of the flare of her dress.  How simply beautiful she is and I love how I can do several different color combos on this one image and they only add to her beauty.  The challenge this week requires that you add lace and this image lends itself to lace very well I think.  Take a look...

I love color and I had a blast combining all these colors to create this card.  I used paper from Basic Grey's Picadilly 6x6 pad (I believe in an earlier post I credited this paper to MME, but it is Basic Grey).  I used that as my inspiration for the colors of her dress.  I used Copics to color her.  I have had the fortune to see several Flamenco dancing acts and the little kids are always my favorite. 
Thanks for looking!

Now get to creating...

Remember:  There are no mistakes in cardmaking, only opportunities for creativity!


  1. OH Candy, how very gorgeous! I love the colours combo and the lace!
