I thought I would show you the card I have made for the proud parents to be.  As my daughter-in-law is from China I wanted to incorporate some special Chinese colours for luck on their card.  Hence the red, gold, yellow and green.  Anyway, I have coloured the image with promarkers and distressed with green ink.  I threaded gold ribbon through the lace before attaching it to the card.  I have followed this week's great sketch and will probably use it again.  The panels are a bit hidden but they are there.  A few gorgeous flowers and a sentiment finish the card.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
