Deep Ocean Challenge #8

A new day and a new challenge here on Deep Ocean Challenge Blog...
But first of all, an HUGE thank you for your entries, all were so beautiful and the choice of top3 was so hard... believe us, it's a tragedy choose only 3 cards for time!
However, we are here to open a new challenge today, helped by our fantastic DT like ever is a big inspiration for all, and for the guest designer for this time, the fantastic Tanja.

No more chatting now, and let's introduce the new theme...
*drum roll* (starting jingle) "... IIIt's fabbyyyy! ... iiit's chiiiiic! ... iiit's elegaaant! ... and a biiig biiig friend, always present on the vintage and romantic card of scrapper... It can be white, cream, or black, and can be a touch of sweetness or sensuality... LET'S HAVE A BIIIIG BIIIIIG HAAND FOOOOOR...


Loved by all, our nannies or grandmothers have a lot of it on their skirt or dressing gown, always in our mind when we think about Romantic period, or the ribbons in the hair of young girls at the end of 18OO, or the hem lines of white blouses of women at the beginning of 20th century, or old vintage photoes of our grandparents around years 20'-30'...
in every side you watch it, the lace is always fantastic, so lovely and chic, and we want give it a big thanks for help our creations to be wonderful, beautiful and sweet (or sexy)!

This time we want see how you interpretate this great theme, with ribbon or fabric it isn't important, must only be lace on your creation!

Now, leave the world to the superb Dt creations... I think they can talk by their own ;)

Our fantastic GDT Tanja:

isn't she soooooo sweet!?!? i think this Tilda can be the most beautiful gift for Christmas!

and our DT:





the prize for this time is this superb summery stamp by Magnolia
the kind sponsor who offers this wonder is Miekelotte:

this shop has a TON of Magnolia stamp...haven't seen more of these before!!

Like usually, you can find the rules of our challenge on the sidebar,
every entry that doesn't respect them will not in run for the win.

Soooo... sending a lots of hugs,
we see next time for winner and top3 announcement, ok?!
