PDCC #51

This the photo inspiration for this weeks challenge at The Play Date Cafe :


I am always happy with a challenge that enables me to play with soft colors; especially when there is blue involved :)

I used:
DP from Tilda, Eline's vintage and Crea Motion.
Scrunched seam binding from Memrie Mare and flowers from Prima.
2 die cuts made with Spellbinders labels one; the biggest one out of white paper and the smallest one (on top) is made out of cream paper.
The border and sentiment stamp are both from Waltzingmouse Stamps.
Ink from Tsukineko: Tuxedo Black and Desert Sand.
The edges from the dies and the card are sponged with Antique Linen distress ink.
The butterfly is punched out of an old book page; lace from my stash.
And I added a few stitches.

I am happy with the result...

Here is my card:




Have a wonderful day!
Stella
