Everything's better with lace {cardstock, that is!}

Have you visited Practical Scrappers yet this week? Let me tell you - if you haven't, you'll want to be making a special trip. We've got such a fun challenge this week! We're all about the lace cardstock, and there's so many great ideas it's hard to know which one to lift first. :D

Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye; Little Yellow Bicycle // Lace Cardstock: KI Memories (?) // Alpha: Pink Paislee Glittered Expressions // White Pen: Signa // Bling: Prima // Cardstock: Close To My Heart

For my layout this week, I layered my lace cardstock onto a Jenni Bowlin chipboard butterfly using a liquid adhesive pen. I added some fab flourishes from Prima, and lovely lettering to finish it off.

Here's a little bonus hint when using liquid adhesive pens (mine is from Zig, but Close To My Heart and I think Tombow make similar kinds...)
If you make a little bit of a mess with the liquid adhesive - wait until it dries, then gently rub away the goo with a white eraser.)

Thanks for visiting!
