Lavender and Lace Christmas

This week the challenge at Die Cut Dreams Christmas Challenge is to use lavender and lace with Karen's sketch.

The stamp is an old one from Hero Arts.  The papers have all been distressed with Tea Dye and I used a MS punch for the scalloped border.

The ruffle and center of the flower is crepe paper which I stamped on with Dusty Concord distress ink.  The center of the ruffle has microbeads.  I used Crystal Lacquer to adhere the beads and it flowed a little too freely. I thought I would have to discard it and start over but now I think it looks like snow.  So I decided to keep it.
There is a silver snowflake in the center of the flower.

Thank you for visiting and have a blessed day!
