Joan's Garden and Cheery Lynn challenge

I made this pretty pink card for the challenges on Joan's Garden and Cheery Lynn.   I used a Sissex folder for the background and rubbed Victorian Velvet and Spun Sugar distressed ink over it.  Then I added a lattice 2 by Cheery Lynn and over that I put the French Pastry doily in darker pink and the mini French Pastry doily in light pink centered in that.  To frame these beautiful doilies I used the  Mini Fanciful Flourish,
For the flower I used the new Daisy strip and colored it with orchid marvy ink pad and added a pink pearl to the center. The leaves are rose leaf strip and  flourish leaf strip.  I added a few little pearls to this card to finish it.

This is just lovely Karen. The card is excellent. So soft and feminine.
I do love the french pastry doiley. Something I have not invested in but would love it.
