Roses are pink....

It's been a few months since I last played along with the Cardvarks Challenge, I don't know why, but guess I had to try out other challenges and got lost. But I've found my way back and I love the sketch for the Cardvaarks May challenge, actually they have two, but I choosed this one. Only thing is, I totally went crazy with the flowers, so they are hiding the frame overlapping the cotton lace as in the sketch. 
I've used white bazzill and pattern paper from My minds eye. The image and white frame is from Crafty individuals. I've used Distress Ink - vintage photo and gold leaf on the frame. Laces and ribbon is from Kontant engros. The sentiment tag is from the Norwegian company Minne hjørnet. Sewingmachine charm and roses are from e-bay. I've used my sewing machine to fasten the laces and ribbons to the paper and to create the border around the paper.
