Monochromatic Lacey Creation

**For my Raise the Bar post, please scroll down to the next entry** 

I wasn't planning on getting inky this morning, but when I saw the new Deconstructed Sketch on Jen's blog, I just had to play!  I've also been turning the wheels in my brain to come up with a creative way to use lace for the Moxie Fab World's Doilies and Lace Challenge.

OK...so this might not bring thunderous applause, but it's a tiny bit creative, don't ya think?  I cut out one of the flower motifs from this gorgeous imported lace from Flourishes and glued it over a kraft corduroy button brad.  The background panel is Vintage Cream CS embossed with a folder that was inked using Antique Linen distress ink before running it through the Big Shot.  I love this new shabby chic fabric flower that came with some happy mail yesterday from the Funkie Junkie!
