I decided to try the sketch over mojo monday, and this is my take on it.
I used peach & craft cs, white & pink & certainly celery doilies. I've made the lace flower in the center out of lace ribbon - I sewed over and then I pulled the thread till it became round and I shaped it into a flower and then I stitched over the pink and bashful blue buttons.
I punched pink & craft cs with MS lace punch and adhered them one on top of the other. the two flowers on the right side are BG circles from June Bug favour bag kit , that I just crumpled a bit and adhered flower buttons.
I distressed the edges of the dp by tearing and distress ink and I also inked the pink doily's edges. I stitched all around the dp with two threads - brown and pink (it is hard to see it because they're so thin. next time I should buy me more thick threads). I did some paper piercing on the peach cs, so both of them give a frame to the whole card.
I added big yellow/cream rose with tulle and a few gold and cream tiny silk ribbon roses. On top of the centered flower, I added a silver pin with tiny blue beads, and some shimering pink pearls on the laced cs.
Well, it sure isn't a CAS card... LOL , but I've made it to a very dear and loved lady, who celebrates a big birhday real soon. I only hope that she will not read my blog the next few days, so this card will surprize her on her B-day...
