 I made this card using one of the free images from LeeAnne at Fripperies and Butterflies, for her Cats Meow Birthday Challenge.  She will have voting on the entries next Saturday, her Birthday.  I will also enter it in the January color challenge (blue and purple) at the Gecko Galz Yahoo Group.  I would love to see some of you there, LeeAnne has so many fun challenges to take part in.   
So I fussed a lot to make this card, I used a new punch I received from my daughters beau for Christmas along with some lace I cut out and Stickled the outline on, (it looks really beautiful IRL).  I punched some vellum for the sentiment and added a rhinestone embellishment I found on clearance last year.  The trim around the image is from a head band I bought at Dollar Tree, it was 9 rows wide and around 10 inches long with some elastic attached.  I cut it into 9 long strands to embellish my cards with.  I had a hard time getting this to pick up in the photos.
Sorry I have been away from visiting this week, I hope to get caught up today.
Well that's it for today, thanks for looking.  ~Diane
