Lacy Days - Caardvarks Challenge

Happy Friday! Time for another amazing Caardvarks Challenge! With the chance to become a Guest Designer for JustRite!
Ever since I was a child I loved the look of pencils on dark paper, so I decided to try this on a card:



This Hero Arts Cling set is one of my favorites and I am in love with this color combo! I was inspired by the Pink Paislee Queen Bee Collection. My sweetest friend Kelley got me new Pink Paislee for my birthday! Can't believe she did that, I wanted the Queen Bee Collection ever since I first saw it! Love ya, dear friend!!

Have a fab Friday and thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa
