Play Date Cafe Challenge #23

I was really drawn to the inspiration picture for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge because of the color blue and the lace. The images were stamped with VersaMark ink and then white embossed on a pale blue glossy cardstock. I added more blue to the flower by sponging it with Adirondack Stonewash ink and also went around the edges of the lace panel for more definition.

Supplies: Hero Arts S5341 Lace Background, CL272 All Occasion Messages, Stampendous Q131 Ruffled Bloom
Here is the inspiration picture.
