Pearls and Lace

Hi Folks,

Managed to finish this card for a friends birthday this weekend.   My new favourite 'lady',  its one of the single image Gibson Girls stamps from the Artistic Stamper.
I made a mask and shaded around her head while still in the Nesti frame. The background is mauve card and I used IndigoBlu Anemone Corner, stamped with Shaded Lilac DI. The panel is CB embossed and sponged with the same ink.  Roses were white and again sponged DI on the edge of the petals.  I hid the join on the 2 pieces of lace with silk braid and pearls. The swirl is a Marianne die.

I am going to enter this card in:
  Sugar Creek Hollow - Pearls and Swirls
  Craft Room Challenge- Add Fabric
  Crafty Creations - Pastels, Pearls & Lace
  My time to craft - It takes 2 (2 nesti frames)
  Pan Pastels Challenge - Pastel colours

Thanks for looking.
