A wee touch of lace..............

Moxie Fab's image for the Tuesday Trigger - A little Romance is so soft and delicate. The blue is such a gorgeous colour. The temptation was to go really shabby, but in the end, I went very clean and simple.

 
 


 I used a couple of pieces from WPlus9's Fresh Cut florals stamp set for the blue section. I first inked card with Versamagic, dried it off, then stamped and embossed with Hero Arts White embossing powder. I then rubbed distress ink over the piece with a blending tool. This gave a veiled effect over the blue and embossing (although it doesn't show well in the photo).
The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
Lastly I added lace, seam binding, a button, twine and a row of stitching.

Just gorgeous. Love that you used the W+9 set for the background. I will have to give that a try.
