Girly…. but I LOVE blue and its ok!

At Totally Gorjuss this week we want to see Lace on your Projects easy hu!
We are sponsored by Heathers Hobbie Haven
The image I have used is one of Krista’s Saturated Canary image isn't she lovely… I have coloured the image in Distress inks I wanted to have blue as I love blue but with her skin and lips being pink I felt I needed to highlight that in the rose in her hair and the bird holding the heart too, I have added white, black and sparkly Gelly roll pen… some glossy accents. crackle paint to the papers and once dry a little blending to the edges to give it a more vintage feel,  I have been seeing doilies everywhere and fancied having a go so got some to have a try… quite like how that looks.
I have added some Lace that kinda has a vintage feel to it but with a little watered down old paper distress ink I have tried to age that a little so it does not look so white against everything else.
The bow is a hand tied double bow with satin and organza ribbon and I have added a rose, and a distressed leaf too. The gems are Robins nest pink (yes pink) gems. As you can see I have also distressed the edges of the papers too! and finally I added some stickle dots around the main image. 
This card is for a my friends little girl, she looks very similar to this image so I think she's gonna love it.
