Good morning!

A new challenge starts today over at 

Here is my inspiration card

I used a 6x6 base card to start with and covered the front in a pretty floral patterned paper from FIRST EDITION BELLA ROSE paper pad. Love these papers. This one has a pearl sheen to it, very pretty.
I used two shades of pink to make two layers, one just a strip approximately 3.5ins wide, the other a square measuring approximately 5x4.5. Instead of cutting these I just ripped them to make a 'ragged' edge, making it look more 'shabby'
I wrapped a piece of Guipure lace around these two pices and adhered it to the back before adhering them to the front of the card. Across the top of this lace I placed another piece of lace, this one being finer, and placed it across the front adhering across the top. It overlaps the guipure lace.
In the top right corner I placed a white resin heart embellishment from PRIMA.
I love decorative chipboards...and I used an intricate detail border, and a small lace doily..I placed these just above the lace.
I 'fussy cut' a pretty frame picture which came with some papers in my stash, I placed it at a slight angle over the doily and border.
At the left edge I placed some flowers in shades of pink/red that were in my stash and purchased from PETAL LU. I used a few green leaves also. I put two pearl stick pins at the top of the flowers too.
To the right of the frame I added a tag, again from a paper pack in my stash, and placed a pink bow at the top.
And thats my DT card for this time.
I hope you like it and it will give you some inspiration.
