Lace and Fineness

Hi there!  This card is for two challenges this week!

CT0212 on SCS

Both challenges are all about using flowers on your projects.  
I like flowers, how about you?

I cut a piece of Prima Romantique paper down to the size that I usually make, 4 3/4 x 4 3/4, and then rounded the corners.  I created my base card with white card stock and rounded those corners too.  {One thing I do when making a card is kind of put the card together before I actually glue anything!} I stamped the pretty ODBD Flower Frames 2 in the center of the square with Bordering blue ink.  Then I used the ODBD/Spellbinders Custom Die Elegant Oval to just emboss in the center of the frame.  Next, I used post it notes to mask all the way around the oval so that just the inner part showed.  I used the music stamp, It Is Well With My Soul, stamping it onto the oval.  Once I removed the post its, I sponged Bordering Blue ink around the edges of the paper and on the embossed area too.  I don't know if you know this or not, but I love lace!  I can't throw it away, no matter how small!  So I had several scraps of lace lying on my desk.  I smeared Beacon 3-in-1 glue in the bottom corners and up the sides and sort of smooshed and layered the lace pieces and then trimmed off any that went over the edges!  How fun!  Then I cut a border with the ODBD Crocheted Border Die from one of the trimmed off pieces and placed it on the card.  I had actually colored this pretty ODBD Tulip a couple of days ago and didn't use it but the colors were not exactly right.  I went over it with different shades of copics until I got some that did the trick!  So the tulip got tucked into place, adding the extra pieces with foam tape for dimension.  Then I added the organdy ribbon and Bow Easy bow and the little pearls to complete the card!!!  I forgot to mention that after the lace was glued down, I sponged some more Bordering Blue ink on the lace.  So that's it!  What do you think?
