Charisma Cardz - Lovely Lace

Good Morning :)  Back again today with my last DT card for Charisma Cardz - boo hoo :(
I have had a fabulous time being part of the team, they are such a wonderful bunch of talented friendly girls, and I will miss them lots.  :)
Anyway, our new theme this week is 'Lovely Lace' and we are sponsored by the generous Joanna Sheen and the brilliant Meljens Designs - fabulous prizes!
I fancied a change from a square card, so dug out one of my old rectangle cards in 7 x 5 - it felt huge! lol :)  I stitched Anna Griffin papers onto bazzil kraft coloured cardstock and layered up more Anna Griffin embellies - the scroll die cuts and the holly leaves.   I also had a good rummage through some of my older stamps too and found some flourishy leaves which I stamped round Tilda in brushed corduroy DI.  I used a mixture of Cheery Lynn, Spellbinder and Doo Hickey dies, flowers from WOC, string from Joanna Sheen and cheesecloth from Amazon. 
The gorgeous lace was a wonderful gift from my fabulous blogging buddy Judy, thanks so much hun! :)
I am entering this card in the below competitions:
Crafts & Me - Autumn Colours
Dies to Die For - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Pins & needles
Thanks so much for looking at my blog today and I will be catching up soon :)

The leafy stamping around Tilda is lovely & fits so well with those leaves. The shading of her dress is an absolute treat - it looks like velvet & the whole card looks decadently shabby Vintage if that makes sense. Very Victorian with Tilda's hair & the layers plus lace.
