I've done a couple of challenges yesterday and today and that can only be down to the lovely ~{Kathy}~ setting a nice and easy topic for this weeks ~{DCM}~ and that is 'Lace'.

I went for a nice and easy card too! The black and white paper is by Autumn Leaves I think. I threaded some black crochet cotton through some lace and gathered it together to make a flower. And that's about it.

Yesterday I made another house for ~{Something Completely Different}~and their theme this week is flowers. I went for the BG Lemonade papers as they are gorgeous. The roof this week is a corner rounder punch with the thingy taken off as the heart punch didn't work out for this size house.

The windows and doors are glossy accented and I thought I'd put the Universal Craft Size Gauge into one shot to show that it does comply to the rules!

The gathered lace looks fab for the flower on your super-stylish DCM card and how adorably dinky is that little house?! Thanks for the pic with the universal craft gauge, it seems much bigger in the pic on its own!
