Lavender and Lace

Today I decided to create, rainy and freezing rain today yet again.  Last night after my SUV adventure, sliding every which way in my drive way to end up in my front yard snow bank, stuck.  Went into the house after climbing out, tell my husband the SUV is parked for the night (TeeHee) it certainly wasn't going anywhere, he decides to get it out of the snowbank ~ I think we should have left it there, make the neighbors wonder what kind of night we had!!  Anyways, this is one way to stay out of trouble, husbands should be grateful for that!
I think Lavender and lace fit this card.  I used some older cardstock,  some designer stitching, the flower is a Prima flower as is the brown leaves, then we have pearls, a stick pin, some light embossing, the lace I got from my Mom and the Lavendar centerpiece is actually a felt coaster - YEP!   It fits well on cards, I think it works.
I have entered it in the following challenges:

 1).  Card Patterns
 2). The Secret Saturday Challenge
3). Creatalicious

I hope you are all having a great day/night and enjoyed your visit.  Tomorrow the Minnesota Vikings are playing for a slot in the SUPER bowl, so I will be watching football and doing some cheering, either way, I am sure it will be the 'talk of the town' the next few days and even longer if they win tomorrow, Rah, Rah!! Go team GO!
