I'm going to be Godmother to my cousin's new baby girl and I wanted a card in the spirit of the lace on the christening dress. I used a retired PSX stamp and inked the image in Versamark Misty Mauve and then embossed with clear detail powder. I just lightly used a copic marker to give the gown a hint of lavendar and then added teeny Viva Pearl Pen pearls to the smocking and bottom of the dress. I also added some stickles glitter, but it doesn't pick up in the picture. For the background "lace" I used the lace diecut by Heartfelt Creations. This is sitting on top of a panel that has been bordered with the tulip deep-cut paper punch by EK Success. And then, to add another perspective of lace, I edged the bottom edge of the top of the card with yet another EK success edger punch. The roses and baby buds are from Wild Orchids and these are sitting on top of some flourishes diecuts by MFT. The white silk bow was made using Becca's Bow Maker.
Overall card is a little smaller than A6. I cut the card to the size of the Heartfelt Lace die.
Thanks for Looking.

Wow! So glad you made the favorites as I missed this! This is just stunning! I love a mostly all white card with just a hint of color. I love your riboon treatment and the roses are just delicious with the hint of lavendar/purple on them. AND that dress image is really beautiful with a touch of glitter and your coloring of it is perfection itself. WOW again!!!
