Lace It Up

Morning everyone, Today's card is for Joan's Garden Challenge.
The challenge was to use the colors brown, red and green use lace if you have it and pearls. Also if you use Heartfelt Creations stamp you get entered twice and if you use the die you will be entered three times.
My card covers all the colors, lace and pearls. I did use a Heartfelt Creations stamp called PosyPatch Swirls HCPC3304. I won this set for doing one of Joan's challenges. When my budget gets a little bit better I will be buying more. I just love the new Cardinal Family set and the Fall sets they came out with. You can find them all at Joan's Garden shop. She is lovely to work with and only charges you what it cost her to ship. So go over and check out all the new stamps and dies. I have my eyes one certain die so leave some for me ok. LOL Joan also has a variety of other great stamps and products. Some wonderful news on Joan's blog today ...... both Olga and Selma have been chosen to be on the Heartfelt Creations Design Team. Great job GF's. You know how much I love your work. :) Hugs and high fives.
On to the card; All card stock is GKD PL chocolate kiss, spruce and white. I started with the chocolate kiss as my base, I stamped the image on the spruce and embossed with Rangers gold detailed powder. I stamped the image again on white embossing it with some glitter red from Michael's. I colored the images with red copics and a dot of green in the middle. Cut all the flowers out and popped them up. Yes it would be easier to have a die, but then I would have less stamps. Budget wise my scissors are working just fine right now. I added my ivory lace with pearls to three corners, I can't forget the ribbon accent from JoLee's, then I punched an oval covered with scotch tape the top "I" and the bottom "in you" from the saying "I believe in you" that comes with the set and inked in versamark and embossed with the same Ranger gold.
I hope you like my creation.
Have a wonderful day
