Die Cut Dreams - Lace it up

This week at Die Cut Dreams it is time to Lace it up. Use some lace on your creation and join the fun. As usual Susie is offering a fab prize!

I've taken a box shaped like a book (from, as is the lace and hymn page), painted it with acrylic paint and distressed the edges. A page from an old book of hymns works as backing paper, Tilda is painted with chipped sapphire.

The sayings are from Our daily bread designs.

Other challenges:

Sophisticats - blue, brown and creme

One stitch at a time - anything but a card

Truly scrumptious - hidden message

Roses on Paper - gift
