No Inspiration

Good evening all!

I've got a new card to show you, but I'm not happy with it. I guess inspiration doesn't come naturally to me, at least not every time ;)

Anyway, I've tried to make a card to fit the new DCD Christmas Challenge: Christmas Lace. I own precisely one bit of lace, so it wasn't too difficult to choose! I thought to let the lace frame the card, so far I really liked it. Then the backing paper, still ok, then.........................bye bye inspiration! Finally, after much trial and error, I finally decided to just put the sentiment on at a jaunty angle. Let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions on how to change it for the better! Maybe I'm just overly critical.

In the mean time, I want to submit the card to the following challenges:

* DCD Christmas Challenge (Christmas Lace)
* Winter Wonderland (Paws for Thought)
* Papertake Weekly (Cold and Frosty Morning)
* Sentimental Sundays (Winter plus a sentiment)

Well, that's all from me for this week, I will be back next Monday!
