TSC24 Ribbons and Lace

Hi All,
Here is my blog hop entry for our Challenge Blog celebration.  The Theme is Ribbons and Lace and when I think of that, I really do think about Marilyn Munroe.  She was the best iconic symbol of femininity that I can think of. I used a piece of lace patterned paper from Melissa Frances and the die cut is from the Lacey Circle Spellbinders and removed the centre with my circle die from Spellbinders.  I used a piece of white lace to back the circle that I die cut.  I fussy cut Marylin and popped her up on dimensionals.
