Delicious Doodles Challenge - Friday 17 May 2013 - Lace

It is Friday and therefore time for another challenge over at Delicious Doodles.  The challenge this week is "lace".
For my card I have used one of Teri's newest images called "Leather and lace".  Isn't she a beauty?  I have made this card for a very special friend.  I have coloured my image with my Promarkers and highlighted areas with my white gel pen.  I've then used my Tim Holtz distressing tool on the image and some of the plain cardstock and then inked the edges with a chalk ink pad.
I decided to go for an orange and yellow colour scheme.  Certainly not my usual colour scheme but I thought it was nice, bright and cheery.  The backing papers I have used are Bearly Mine Designs Gingham, Bearly Mine Designs Mini Dots and Bearly Mine Designs Summer's Lace Dreams.  The card has been finished off with some paper flowers I was given which I have flower brads to, ribbon bow, buttons, die-cut sentiment and lace.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Totally Gorjuss - BINGO board - top horizontal row of lace, ribbon and flowers
One Stitch at a Time - Summer fun - I've decided to go with the summer colours of orange and yellow
Sentimental Sunday - For a special woman and sentiment
