Let's get shabby #46

The colour palette is this

I started with the background paper featuring the 2 grey colours. It is called Delish Royale Black Forest. Next I found the scrap of pink lace featuring apricot sequins and pink bugle beads as well as pearls. It was an offcut and an odd shape but I've managed to hide it.
The photo was matted on book paper and 2 aqua doileys from Typo. Journalling block is pink.
I added apricot washi tape and vintage lace at the top and bottom.
The Memory maze chipboard corner flourish was misted in turquoise, but matches the aqua doileys quite well. Kaisercraft resin blossoms helped to decorate.
Last, but not least I had salmon lace from my mother's  fabric stash from the 1940s. I constructed 3 flowers and added a centre button in a pinky orange.
 

and some closies

Hope you like it!

Sooo beautiful.....I love the hand made lace flowers (very special 'cos they came from your Mum's stash). The photo of the baby in that bonnet suggests it may have been a Christening??? Can't quite read your journalling. Lovely work :)
