A Symbiotic Relationship

Another week is winding down and that brings us around to Fairy Fun Friday again. I'm so happy you took the time to stop by today to see what I have made for our weekly challenge. This week's challenge is called Lace it Up, which I interpreted by adding lace to my sample. I decided to use the wonderful muted colors from the Play Date Cafe's challenge this week.

Card Details:
Image: In the Garden by The Prairie Fairy
Sentiment: Raindrop Echo Designs (I'm not sure if this is available. I picked it up as a freebie from Sentimental Sundays a few weeks ago.)
Paper: The background paper is from Designer Digitals La Cremerie Citrouilles paper pack but I altered the color in my PSE to match one of the color chips given in the Play Date Cafe challenge. The paper used to mat the main image is an antique botanical drawing from the Vintage Moth. Flourishes card stock was used to print the digital image on which works wonderful with Copics. Stampin' Up Basic Black and Whisper White
Ink: Copics, Creamy Caramel and Frayed Burlap DI
Other: Crocheted lace and buttons

Questions? If you have any questions on my work, supplies or techniques, please leave them in the Comments section and then check back later for an updated post including that information.

The rest of the design team has some lacy beauties to share with you so be sure to stop by Fairy Fun Friday and check them out. Hope to see you playing along with this week's challenge.
