Elegance and Lace over at the Shabby Tea Room...

Hi there, how is everyone today ? Well, I wasn't feeling very inspired this week, until I saw this photo  over at The Shabby Tea Room ; how romantic is this ? we have to use  cream or white, pink, craft and lace......This is my card, and below is the inspirational photo ..

I hand cut the contour, used some Scrap Cake Papers for the base, distressing and inking my edges with Ranger Tattered Rose (  a must  if you like Vintage). I glimmer misted my main flower, added it to a filigree base, cut out some lace to use as leaves and applied on a vintage doily ( comes form my mom when she first got married !). Inked my seam binding with same color and added some pearls...

I used this image from Gecko Galz because of the chandelier and the colors; I added some glossy accents to the roses. For the sentiment I embossed My friend  on Kraft paper and glistened it up with   liquid pearls (Bisque); a few pearls and mini roses for added romance..

I really enjoyed this challenge...thanks for peeking !
