Build a Lace Flower

The challenge this week at At Joan's Gardens is to use peaches, cream and green, a pearl, and a fan. For this challenge I created a card using the stripes label embossing folder by Lifestyle Crafts.  I used the build a flower punch and stampset and the coral stamp from By the Tide "kissing technique" by Stampin Up for the large flower inked in peach color ink and misted with champagne color glimmer mist.  The center of the flower is gathered lace edging from my stash, gathered and stitched in a tight circle and topped with an ecru organza rose (SU). That flower is all worked with my Mc Gill flower creating mat and Punch  Bunch tools that I got at Joan's Gardens.  The cream and shades of peach paper is some I made in Photosho to match the project and the flower.  The green paper is Green Faux Canvas (Recollections Paper).  The  mats are created with Spellbinders Wonky Triangles S4-306 available at Joan's Gardens.  You can see just a bit of the coordinating envelope that I made for this card using  Create a Lopoe GS46100 available at Joan's Gardens.  The cream paper is lightweight resume paper and the little fan is made of the same paper, spritzed with champagne shimmer, and tied with green embroidery floss.  The edges are a thin gold and sparkle sticker strip.   The edge of the fan is cut with decorative scissors, and behind the shaped edge, I've adhered the same lace trim as in the flower's center.  I typed the green Congratulations sentiment in Photoshop, arched it, and then fan-folded the paper using my Scor-Pal to give me the fold lines.
