Cheery Lynn Doily challenge with Calla Lilies

This pretty frame is the Victoria Garden Doily Frame from Cheery Lynn.  This is a 5x7 card with printed vellum for the background. I cut the frame from white CS and added a piece of white behind it. I sponged spun sugar and peeled paint around the frame for some depth.  The flourish leaves are the center of the frame die cut. I used olive leaves and pine branches and sponged the peeled paint and crushed olive on all the leaves and added some glitter to some of them.  The gorgeous Calla Lily stamp set is from Flourishes    I embossed in gold and used H2O's to color them.  I made this for their spring challenge also.  I added a double bow and a MS butterfly with some gems to finish the card.  This also fits with the Best Buds challenge on Split Coast.

Oh, my! Aren't these Callas beautiful! It's wonderful that they come in so many pretty colors so we have all these options. I love your fabulous doily frame and the pinks. I know I'll always see something very feminine and lovely when I come here.
