Our Daily Bread Designs SLC223 Inspiration Challenge

Hello everyone!
Each week Our Daily Bread Designs offers us a challenge for our card making. You can find details about this week's challenge here:

This week's challenge was to create a card using this photo as inspiration, either using the colors or something else in the picture. 

For my card I used the colors of mint, white, and pink and I focused on the florals.  I found a piece of floral designer paper in my stash and layered the panels (5" x 1 1/8th") on mint card stock.  

The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs "Thank You Sentiments" stamp set and I used  ODBD's Crocheted Border stamp and die.  I embossed the sentiment and the crochet stamp using ink from Colorbox and Recollections Clear Embossing Powder. 

The "Thank You Sentiments" stamp set can be found here:

I added an actual crocheted trim piece made by my mother Jean Ness (thank you Mom!) and also added a little satin ribbon. 

The scalloped ovals were made using the Elegant Edges cartridge from Cricut and I put some dimensional adhesive under the sentiment panel. 

Thank you for stopping by!
