Thank you, Sandi, for the can of lace!

The other day I had lunch with a former book club pal and she brought me a bag of crafty things she didn't want.  In the bag was a tin container with a variety of old ribbons and lace.  It wasn't long before a piece of the lace found its way onto this card.  Then I had to get out the sewing machine because the card just screamed for stitching.  (I had a tag blanket I wanted to make for little Laila, so I got that done at the same time.)  I used a bunch of leftover freebie paper to make the banners and strips. The stamps for the green circle and sentiment are CTMH.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Jo's Scrap Shack Fun Friday Challenge # 40 - Anything Goes
Polkadoodle Challenge #10 - Mum's the Word
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #249 - Mother's Day/Female
It's All About the Vintage and Beauty Challenge #63 - Use Lace
Southern Girls Challenge - Swinging in the Breeze
Shopping Our Stash Challenge #321 - Use 3-2-1 of something  (I used one piece of lace, 2 rows of straight stitching, and 3 different dp (2 of each) for the banners.)
