"Ribbon and/or Lace" at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

"Wish Upon A....."
Wow, what a challenge this was....but it was heaps of fun going through the op shops looking for lace...I came out with a bag full ~ and only needed just a tiny bit!


This is a gorgeous Santa Rosa stamp that every time I looked at it, I just couldn't get the whimsical feel out of my head...so when I came across a feather boa at the op shop! 
Well, I only needed one feather really...


I hope this close up gives you feel of the whimpsy-ness.....
The lace is from a netted table piece, and I just cut around the lace bits that I wanted and put them on the card.
The gold highlights are from some TH gold embossing powders just dabbed into the corners of the main card and the centre card.  Also I used some gold leaf flecks under some dome stickers and mounted on matching blue card as a highlight, I wanted to carry the gold feel through...all the card is distressed with TH Broken China and Victorian Velvet then sprayed with a fine mist of water.
And the blue ribbon is from my stash.
Oh, and I used acetate for the wings and put some glitter glue on the back, as well as on the butterflies and to highlight the dress.
