Lace & Sepia

The challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow is called LOVELY LACE.  We want you to put lace (the fabric kind) on your vintage or shabby chic card.

I have combined lace and sepia for this vintage card with lots of layers.  The image was coloured to begin with but I turned it into a sepia image and mounted it on a Spellbinders die cut.  The corner is a die cut and the script paper is an embossing folder.  The lace comes from a bridal supply store and I have added a doily, some flowers, feathers, a pearl and a stick pin.  Oh and about those flowers - the little one was pink and white polka dots but since it was the size I wanted, I just painted it with some craft paint.

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