A Circle of Crocheting

My card today features products from two favorite companies: Rubber Stamp Tapestry and Really Reasonable Ribbon. My images are from a brand new set from Rubber Stamp Tapestry called Dotted Heart Border. This would make a darling Valentine's Day card, as well as an everyday "affection" card, as I have made today. 

I used one of my favorite trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon, Amelia White Crochet Lace. A beautiful cotton lace that comes in 2 yard pieces, or a whole spool (my preference!), this lace could be easily dyed, or left the pure white color, as I did here.
 
Click on either picture for a clearer, close-up view. This little round card measure about 4.25" in diameter. Cute as a button size!

Thanks for taking a peek today!
