My "Grape-ful" Bestie

I made a very purple-y grape card today for My Besties UK Challenge to use purple, My Besties Aussie Challenge to use 2 different laces and flowers, My Besties Challenge to use something new and something old, Scrapbook Stamp Society's Challenge #41 Anything Goes and for Totally Gorjuss' Challenge #236 to also use lace.

And here she is. My new something is the black and white laces which I bought from my local craft store a few weeks ago and hadn't opened and my old something is the patterned paper which retired from SU a couple of years ago and I still have loads of the pack left!

And with the tag out...
