Lace and frills for Kraftin Kimmie!

Ok gals, this week at Kraftin Kimmies the challenge is to use lace and/or frilly ribbon on your card. That should be easy peasy right?!  The image I have chosen is Princess Petunia and I have chosen to do her in shades of orange. Not my favorite color to work with but love the paper so I went with it.
I really need to work on my shading for ruffles, just can't seem to get the hang of it no matter how many youtube videos I watch but it's not bad. I added lace from the Recollections line along the side of the image and some lace I had sitting on the shelf in the back, stickled the edge of her dress and on the mini roses and backed it all with dark brown paper. I know it looks black in the photo but I thought that was too harsh so I used dark brown instead. So here is your chance to win, play along with the challenge and you could win the stamp used on Kristas card, she used the new Diana image and it is so sweet!

Fabulous Amanda.
I love the orange shades..though not a colour I ever really use, and the papers are so pretty.
Loving the lace and flowers..perfect embellies that are enough but don't overpower the image.

Gorgeous always rock the kk's.

Love Elaine xx
