Lacy Flower

Another challenge at Moxie Fab World , inspired by trends Cath spotted in the new Card Creations, Volume 10, is doilies and lace.  I started with this beautiful piece of Webster's Pages paper, roughed up the edges, and then proceeded to build a lacy flower, first stamping a doily and embossing it in white, then die-cutting a smaller one, and then built a 9-layer fluffy flower on that, centered with a pearl brad.
