Tuesday Trigger ( Fancy Schmancy)

It's been a while since I played Tuesday Trigger (details here). The latest one is just too delicious to pass up. 
 I took the doily, color combo, textures into my design. I embossed the Starburst Lace and added the die cut (with Untitled Word Shadow). The punched-out butterflies are from Cosmo Cricket paper. Here is my interpretation.

The gorgeous lacy ribbons is from my sweet HA Flickr friend Cheiron . I really like how it added the interest against the brown. I had to re-do the love image. Originally it was the same hot pink as the layering card stock, but I find all the pink were too glaring, so I embossed the image over Bazzill Basics (watermelon). It is easier on the eyes now, I think. Thanks so much for stopping by!
