Now and then we girls need a bit of lace in our lives.  I made this after a while of doing modern and CAS cards and thoroughly enjoyed the change.  For someone moving into a new home.

The notepaper is just that, torn from small notepad that has little pictures in the corner, all of them lovely.  This birdhouse dictated the colour scheme, that lovely duck egg blue, which I love.  Lots of little elements here - a doily, lace, ribbon, pearls, al tiny bird and a stamped, painted, cut out flower, all on a layered background one of which is distressed, the other crisp and stitched.

Flower Stamp: Penny Black
Sentiment stamp: Rosie's
Bird die: Kaisercraft
Doily die: Nellie
Stitched rectangle: Dienamics
