Lovely Lace!

Hi everyone,  I hope your week has got off to a good start.  I've a busy week work wise ahead with lots of travelling for the next few days so I'm hoping the snow is going to hold off until Thursday!  Anyway onto today's card, I thought I would make a shabby chic style card to show off the gorgeous new lace that is now in the Crafty Ribbons Shop.

Here is some info about the lace from the Crafty Ribbons Shop:

'Our lace is manufactured in France using traditional methods.
Not a computer in sight, the lace is spun from bobbins on machines that are almost 80 years old,
the design is produced using hole punched cards.
How do we know this?
We visited the factory - the smell and noise of the machine room was wonderful!'

This lace is so beautiful and comes in so many colours! The lace on my card is Clermont Cotton Lace in Creme.  

Have a lovely week.
Hugs Lynsey x

Papers - Vintage Paper Pad - Crafter's Companion
