FUSSY & FANCY FRIDAY CHALLENGE - Photo Inspiration - Lavender and Yellow

Hi everyone,

I am delighted to be back with a Design Team card to share which I made for the Challenge at  Fussy and Fancy  Actually, it is not my turn to post this time but when I saw the lovely Inspiration photo I could not resist playing along.  
Isn't this photo just gorgeous that Diane has chosen! 

  Diane is hosting this Challenge, and we are sponsored by Fresh Brewed Designs  
and Sweet Lilac Flowers I was lucky enough to be able to use this lovely image for my creation!   I think this is such a versatile image and especially suited to celebration cards.

I opted to make another gift bag, altering one which was in a pack from either The Range at York or Hobbycraft.
Have you seen this beautiful lace?!  OMG!  I was sent the most beautiful little parcel of the finest quality lace by Jules (Jules Ribbons and Cards) to try.  Well, as a lot of you will know, I usually get my lace locally and I was expecting to receive much the same as I can get in Town.  WAS I WRONG!!!!  This lady's shop is definitely worth a look and the photos just do not do it justice at all.  I love using Guipure lace and there are some beautiful designs (which I must admit I had not seen before) at such reasonable prices to be found here
In addition there is a lovely selection of rosette ribbon, seam binding (this is what I used for my two bows) and also flat back pearls on roll.  I am well impressed!
Thank you Jules!
