Going Dutch

The challenge today at Delightful Challenges is to get girly with lace and pearls.  I intended to try to make this little cutie all in blue and white because I often think of the Delft blue china when I think of Holland.  But in the process of doing a bit of research I discovered that orange is big in the Netherlands even though it isn't a colour in their flag - it is the colour of the royal family.  So that is why my card is blue and orange.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
