Black Lace

I'm sliding back into the digital gutter. Exhibit A:

The assignment is to make inchies with lace for a mingle (sort of like a swap). There are a lot of ways to go with this idea. I could attach real lace to an inchie, or make paper lace with punches, or even crochet little tiny doilies (yeah, right!) but instead I had to go digital. This isn't even really lace, it is fractal art.

The words were cut out of a book that I got from the dollar store.

So, I had this all this fractal lace that I printed out, used a total of 4 square inchies, and didn't have a plan for the rest of it, when I recalled the Clean and Simple challenge at Gingersnap Creations. Their thesis is that if you take a printed image, cut it into a triptych and tie a ribbon around it, it qualifies as a handcrafted card. Really?

What do you think? Does this count as a "real" card?
