Waltzing Mouse Challenge #54

 Hello again.  I'm not sure what was going through my head when I made this card.  I started out with a simple design in my head, and then I saw the gorgeous baker's twines on the table, and suddenly I'm into plaiting them. Then I felt it needed some blings.  So... the card above was the end result.  I'm not sure if I went overboard ;-)  Tell me what you think...I can take it... honestly!

This card was based on this sketch
at Waltzing Mouse's sketch challenge blog.  Come play along with us or check out all the entries, because I'm sure you'll be inspired!

Alright, I hope your day is Amazing!!

Stamps : WMS Large Doily set, Roses in Bloom (sentiment)
Cardstock : Gina K PLCardstock, Making Memories ledger paper
Ink : ColorBox Frost white, Memento Grape Jelly
Other : Uni Ball White gel pen; Baker's twines - Lilac, Caribbean, Lemondrop; blings

The card has an air of elegance. Not only is the colour rich and vibrant but the added blings certainly enhance the outcome. Great job.
