The Paper Shelter Challenge #170 Lace

It's time for another challenge from the fabulous The Paper Shelter design team and today our challenge #170 is to use lace. There are so many gorgeous laces out there and I have a huge piles of laces in various colours and sizes so it was hard for me to choose which one and then it was even harder to choose which gorgeous image to use.

I eventually decided to go a little bit sassy and use some red lace that I bought from my local craft store a while ago and teamed it up with the gorgeous Tango stamp from The Paper Shelter. I fell in love with this digi as soon as I saw her but have never gotten round to using her until today. My printer for some reason didn't like her tights though and only printed dots rather than the actual lines so I had to use my Copic Fine Liner to put them back in at the end.

Anyway here she is....Isn't she just fabulous?! I couldn't find any dance related sentiments in my arsenal of stamps so hunted on Pinterest for some good ones and copied this one. It's so true as well. Life would be so much more fun if we danced more!
