Happy belated Valentine's Day, everyone!  I hope you were surrounded by love yesterday and every day.  Today marks the start of our second challenge for February on the Double D Challenge Blog and Team Darlene is here to inspire you.   Our "Lavender and Lace" Challenge was a huge success with so many beautiful entries.  Thanks to everyone that played along.

Cheery Lynn's  Zig Zag Ric Rac Die Cut.

There's lots of inspiration to be had among the beautiful colors and designs on this mood board!  Choose one photo or use them all to inspire your challenge entry.

How fun is this mood board?

My inspiration came from chevron/zig zag design on the comforter in the last photo.  The colors of turquoise, white and taupe were a perfect match to some paper in my stash.  The taupe cardstock base helped to pull out the muted shade in the patterned paper.   To stay with the paper theme, I used my  zig zag circle and banners dies for embellishing.  I also added a foliage stem cut from the taupe cardstock along with some pearl dew drops.  To finish the card, I wanted to use ric rac since it was part of the challenge theme.  The flower is made of two lengths of ric rac that are pieced together to form a circle.  I found a tutorial on You Tube to help with making it.

Oh, gosh, I didn't realize you'd made the flower from ric rac. That is just too clever and pretty! You sure matched up the colors and design with the inspiration photo, and did it beautifully, as always!

The pattern paper is so pretty, but you complimented it with great elements and design! I absolutely love that hand-made flower too! Beautiful!
