I decided to use one of Flourishes newest sets, Hello Hyacinth. The image was colored with Copic markers and Distress Ink walnut stain to add more shadow. Then I sponged the mat with ink and daubers. The sentiment was stamped with Tag Lines set on the the circle mat and sponged the mat with dauber. The paper doily on the back was also sponged and I sprayed some glimmer mist (of course it is hard to see for my photograph tech :P) To finish off, I embellished with the lace trim, ribbon with decorative brad and pearls.

The color combo was inspired by SCS Color Combination challenge 311 (CC311) and the sketch was actually stared from Card Positioning Systems 206 (CPS206) but I think it ended up the total different layout …:P
