Lucious Lace

Hi Folks,

Hope everyone is safe and well in this snowy weather, although we have had snow all day, it has been wet and making the previous snow into slush - I hate this bit!
My card today is for the Challenge at In The Pink and its there by the skin of my teeth!  Still felt the need for something pretty, and as the challenge suggests, its PINK!  The paper is a Pink Petticoat freebie, stitched and distressed, added half a lace 'cake' doily again distressed. The CI image was stamped in Brown StaZon and coloured with Spun Sugar Distress marker.  My shabby flower is TH Tattered Florals, with a lace and pearl centre and a bottom layer of gauze (raided the First Aid box again) and lace.

I also added 3 vintage lace flowers from my stash.  The bow was coloured with Spun Sugar and Tattered Rose.
I am also entering this in:
  Sugar Creek Hollow - TicTacToe ( Sewing/Distressing/DieCut)
  Stampin for the Weekend - Something Girlie
  The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop -  Flowers and Ribbon
  The Shabby Tearoom - Insp + Stripes & Flowers
  Make it Monday - Anything Goes

That's it for me, I'm making the most of this snowy weather by staying in and 'playing'

It's a beautiful card, Avril. I love your shabby flower.
We had our first proper snow today so it's all white and pretty here. I've watched it from the comfort of my craft room though!!!
Keep warm.
