365 Cards Day 160 "Lovely Lace"

Today's challenge at 365 Cards was to use lace on your card.
This one was kind of tough for me because I am not a fan of lace (like it on other people's creations, but never sure of how much is tooooo much!). I didn't really have any lace in my stash, or so I thought. Then, when I was looking for something else, which I never did locate, I came across a package of lace appliques! I don't even remember buying them...maybe at a yardsale or something?!?! My mother-in-law asked me to make her a 50th anniversary card for her for the weekend so.....

I used some spray adhesive to attach the lace. I coated the numbers in gold ink and heat embossed them in gold, as well as the sentiment. I need a better "happy anniversary" stamp! I think you can see in the picture that I punched a circle in the card front and glued the "50" to the inside. It turned out better then I anticipated, and it may have converted me to a lace user!
