"Lovely Lace" and Sugar Creek Hollow

Hope you are having a wonderful start to your weekend and welcome to the "Lovely Lace" challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow where our theme asks you to use lace, either fabric or crochet and of course in a vintage/shabby chic style.
I was looking at one of Heather Hudson's (my teammate) videos on her YouTube channel where she
created a paper bag journal and it inspired me to create a paper pad notebook that I had been 
thinking of trying for a while. You will want to check out her channel as she has lots of great tips
in her videos.
I used Stampin' Up card stock to form my base, measuring it to fit my pad with a 3/8" score for my edge. K and Co. creates some of my favorite papers which I used on this along with river rock card stock as one of my labels layers and 3D die cuts also by K and Co.
My fabric lace is from a vintage (or is 1980 not vintage age yet??? sure feels like it) wedding
dress and veil which I cut the lace and tulle from to create my flower and trim.
I have several pictures showing the stamps I also added to the front and the 
gorgeous glassine bag I used on the inside for notes, receipts or other treasures.

I hope you will stop by at SCH and take a look at all of the lacy goodness by my sweet
teammates and get your card entered for a chance at a digital image by Cec or a chance to
be a guest designer. We would love to see your work.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
