Sweet Stamps- Use your Favorite Embellishment

The challenge at Sweet Stamps is, "Use your favorite embellishment"....'Except I cannot pick just one......!  I am a lover of lace, ribbon and sewing on cards. So, I added all three : )
 The Butterscotch cardstock has Butterscotch ink (Spot) through a stencil as a background- it is a subtle backdrop for the floral image. I colored the image with Copics. I used a towel and Copic Colorless Blender '0' to texturize the vase. And, then I fussy cut the image- love the way it looks on the black BG- it is popped up on dimensionals.

 Here is a close-up of the Enamel Embossed chipboard piece- pictures do not do this embossing powder justice!

Here are the products I used from the Store:
