For this card for the Crafty Secrets and Wee Memories challenges, I used a piece from one of the vintage postcard kits, and embellished with some velvet ribbon and a lace rosette, which I dyed in my microwave oven from peony petals from my summer garden last year. Thanks for the challenge!

What beautiful spring colors!! This turned out so beautiful! I love how you popped up some of the flowers. I love your embellishments and your hand died lace rosette. I'm just wondering what you meant by "died in the microwave". If this is a technique, I would love to hear more about it over on our thread.
