A Touch of Adornment

Revisiting a card made some time ago today and still very happy with it. Lots of layers on this one with Coconut White and Duck Egg Blue. The Coconut White is a subtle white if you can have such a thing! It seems to tone down the project and I think with lots of lacey detail, subtle colour is good.

The card base squares are cut with the Presscuts Squares and Stitched Squares die sets which go together perfectly. I have used, from the Configurations Collection, both Milford and Hobart forming the lacey backgrounds. In the centre, is young Sydney from the Australian Collection
The flower today is the Perfect Peony Complete Petal stamped with the matching Shaded Peony stamp set. Sentiment used is from Phill Martins Baroque sentiments and finally a little pearl corner embellishment in each corner.

    And you should be pleased Maxine - it's gorgeous. I'm not for "old fashioned lacey" but this look is just fab.
    Colours wonderful.
