Swirls and Lace

 Good morning again! I think this weeks challenge at Stamptacular Sunday will be really easy and fun. It's all about swirls and lace!
Our sponsor this week is Meljens Designs and are offering the winner four digis.

For my card I have used 'Jules' from Saturated Canary. 
The paper is My Mind's Eye Bramble Rose and I used the sketch for this months Live and Love Crafts Challenge. It is a gorgeous sketch and makes for an easy card! I used Vintage Photo to distress the paper edges and Fired Brick to dye my seam binding a light salmon pink which I weaved through the crochet lace from my stash! I also used some paint in a mini mister diluted with water to spray my flower from Wild Orchid Crafts. 
The cream paper flowers I made myself using the paper from the MME pad and the Tattered Florals die from Tim Holtz. I used the smallest flower and put a pearl in the centers to tie in the pearl swirl I have running down the right side. I love the swirl! It is from Close to My Heart. And for an added extra something I have some pearl stamens also from Wild Orchid Crafts sticking out of my flower bunch. 

This sweetie was colored with Copics. I had her hair and skin colored for months and just got around to coloring the rest of her!

Here's a close up of my little flowers!

And here are the Copics I used.
