I saw this technique on Jennifer McGuires YouTube channel ( https://youtu.be/vvLOZ1nJQAA ) and decided to give it a try with alternating layers of black cardstock and glossy flower images from an old calendar. That way if it really bombed, I wasn't out my favorite paper! It was a bit time consuming (especially because this is my first try) but I like the look of it. I did pop my cutout layers up on foam to showcase the die cut a bit more, and I got to try coloring my lace with my SN markers. Then I decided to add the white crushed velvet ribbon because it would tie in with the white base card, and because I just love it! I bought it Tuesday at the Offray ribbon outlet in Hagerstown MD, for a whopping 25 CENTS! If you get to Hagerstown, visit the Offray outlet for sure! TFL

Thanks for your description! It really makes the card more interesting to me at least knowing how it was accomplished. The colors are wonderful against the black. The dyed lace really shines! Wish I had a ribbon outlet around to get those kind of prices!
