Creative Colors Challenge #3

Hi crafty peeps!

Today makes the start of another challenge at Creative Colors Challenge. My card was picked as the winning card for their very first challenge ever. My prize was two lovely digis and the Guest Designer Spot for this week.

Whimsy Stamps is the sponsor this week and Archana gave me a darling digi stamp called Gracie (from Whimsy Stamps) to use with the new color palette and theme. (The artist is StampArt Design by Kathryne.)

Here is the color palette!  And the theme is decorative laces!

I loved this color palette and I loved the theme. Here is my card!

Here's my recipe:
Image - Gracie by Whimsy Stamps
Cardstocks and Lace from my stash
Spellbinders Die from Captivating Squares Set
Petaloo Paper Flowers from Crafty City (Archana's store for one-stop shopping)
My image is colored with Copic Markers
       Skin: E000, E00, R20
       Hair: E59, E57, E53, E50, W7
       Dress: R29, R27, R24
       Shoes: C2, R0000
       Fence: E84, E87
       Grass: YG61, YG63
       Butterfly: B41, B34

Here is a closeup of the paper flowers. They are even more gorgeous in real life.
