Lavender and Old Lace (Plus Ribbon for Good Measure)

Gosh, I have been busy today. Another challenge card, this time for: Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge #152-lace and -ribbons .  The image is a paint fusion "Lavender" Stamp from Sheena Douglass - stamped and painted on an "aged" background and framed with gold embossing powder. The A5 double sided base card was dry embosses the right edge trimmed to the embossed line to show the lighter inside colour of the card.
Two narrow strips of cotton lace were bonded to the card and the join covered with lavender coloured ribbon. A piece of this ribbon was also bonded down the inside edge of the card. The two fancy cut outs were made with the brand new Spellbinders die called Grate Works. These were bonded carefully in place and then the image was added on top.
The image was finished off with a lavender bow and pale blue hot glue Swarovski crystals were stuck on place on the point of the embossing on the left had side and also to the ribbon strip on the right.
