Flowers and Lace - Just Inklined - Fussy and Fancy DT

And onto my second late post (see the last post for reason. I can't believe how clumsy I am getting to be. I have arthritis in my hands and have problems with my grip, constantly dropping things.

Today is the start of the new fortnightly challenge at Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge, and oh my you need to see the inspirational cards from the team, you can find them here .  Sheryl is our host for the challenge and chose the theme of Flowers and Lace. 

I really do try to make 'fluffy' cards where nothing is straight and things hang over edges, but I never manage it. I don't know if it's due to 45 years of nursing where things had to be straight but here I go with another card which is regimented again :)

This is one of my favourite images and it can be used for so many reasons, It's 'Poppy Cluster' from just Inklined. The main image it cut with a SB Grand Circle, then I added one from the Tonic Rose collection, and then another from SB's Grand Decorative circles. 
To complete this main plaque I added a red circle behind and a cream pearl strip. 
The very wide lace border is a very old SB 'Heartfelt Creations' die, one of the first ones I ever bought. The 'Art Deco/Rennie Macintosh' inspired corners from Memory Box. The ribbon and resin flower, and pearls  are from my stash. The Sentiment is from LOTV.

This is view of the inside of the card. I used another part of the Tonic rose set.

An angled view of the card front.

We are being sponsored this week by Sweet Lilac Flowers
and they are offering a special prize for the winner,

So that's it.  It's up to you now.  I bet you have lot's of Flowers, lace and dies just waiting for you to use them  Thanks for taking the time to look

A beautiful card - I love the rich colours and your design. I also struggle with things hanging over the edge, distressed edges and 'lots of bits' although I love to see that type of card!
