Lavender and lace

Hello everyone

Here is today's card - 
I began by folding a piece of A4 white centura pearl in half and cutting with Go Kreate's XXL square frilly frame # 2 to create a shaped card. I then cut a piece of lavender centura pearl with a smaller die from the set and embossed with a M-Bossabilites hearts embossing folder. I added this to the card base and attached some white lace (from the Ribbon Girl) and some ribbon (from my stash). The image I have used is Tilda with spring heart and has been coloured with the following Spectrum Noirs - 
  • skin - FS1, FS3, FS4 and CR1
  • hair - TN5, TN8 and TN9
  • hearts, bows and shoes - LV1, LV2 and BGR2
  • dress - EB1, TN1 and BG1
  • shadow - IG2
  • sky - IB1
I cut the image out using Spellbinder's hearts circle die and inked whilst still in the die with milled lavender distress ink. I then matted the image onto a Spellbinder's Grand decorative circle one cut from  Magnolia cloudy purple hearts paper and attached to the centre of the card with foam pads.
I added a LaLa land hearts banner cut from white centura pearl to the top corner and used the hearts from the waste (!!) to attached to the other corners.
To finish I added some white and lavender flowers from the Ribbon Girl.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges - - hearts - lavender and lace
