For this weeks card I used the 6" Glitz French Kiss paper pack.  For the bottom layer I cut two 3 x 6" pieces and layered them to a 6" square card.  Starting with a piece of Beckett Expression Candlelight paper I cut an oval using the XL7 Oval Stacker die set from from Cheery Lynn Designs and stamped the 1900's Lady from SweetStamps.com using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I colored the image using Copic markers, E00, E27, R20, W3 and W5.  I used a course pouncer and Tuxedo Black ink to add the speckles around the image.  Using the DL190 Oval Lace Reflections die from CLD I cut 2 separate half ovals using the smallest of the lacy dies ( I did this because the solid oval and the lacy oval are not quite the same size and I had to adjust it to fit).  I layered one lace oval half behind the image and trimmed off the excess that was to wide and attached this to the oval that I colored.   I did the same for the lace oval on the bottom half but before attaching it to the oval I layered the B159 Francesca Border from CLD between the oval and the lace oval.  Then I layered the oval and border to the card.  The corners are from the B164 Lace Corner Deco D set from CLD.  I used All Purpose Adhesive spray to layer them to the card.

The flowers are made from a combination of the B164 Lace Corner Deco D, B129 Cherry Blossoms, B154 Medium Rose and B152 Mini Rose all from CLD.  I used brads to hold the petals together and foam dots to attach the flowers to the card.  I cut an oval from the XM7 Little Stacker Ovals and stamped it with the 9065 Old Fashioned Wish from SweetStamps.com then trimmed the excess.  I layered this to the card and added the Black Self Adhesive Pearl Strip from Kaiser Craft to finish it off.
