Flowers and Lace Challenge at Crafting by Designs

Hi everyone. Here in East Yorkshire we've been having some gorgeous sunny weather for a change making our garden lovely and green which kind of influenced the colour of my card for the new Challenge at Crafting by Designs.

The theme for this week is Flowers and Lace which is a really lovely theme. I chose the delightful Queen Anne's Lace- Sanctuary Bloomin' Treasures from Lacy Sunshine. I had to look online to see what colour Queen Anne's Lace was, it's a really pretty white cluster of flowers. I don't usually like green (bad experience with a bottle green school uniform!) but it just seemed to go with the image. Here's my card.....

The sponsor for this Challenge is the wonderful
Prize - choice of 3 single digi images.
A fabulous prize I'm sure you'll agree.

A couple more shots of my card....

You can't see but there's clear Wink of Stella on her dress and die cut flowers. I also put DecoArt glitter on the flowers,her wings and the dragonflies too. 

and showing the sparkle...
