TRR Challenge #41 'Crochet'

Welcome friends to another fun fortnightly challenge at The Ribbon Reel!
It's Zuzana's turn to host this week.

Zuzana has chosen this bright and beautiful inspiration photo .....

and ask that you create a card / project using CROCHET LACE or CROCHET FLOWER plus BUTTON & RIBBON/TWINE.

Here is my card....

I left it a little late to make my card, hence the dark photo taken this evening.  I've been suffering with my second cold within 2 weeks, plus my hubby is suffering with severe tooth ache.  I'm hoping it's related to the cold he gave me and not the root canal work he recently had done!  Emergency appointment needed in the morning for him!!

I was thinking of cheating and making a CAS card but changed my mind after flicking through my stamps and found this cute Gorjuss image, Little Foxes.  I dug out my Promarkers and got colouring.  Once I'd coloured my image, I found some matching papers, although I have no idea where they are from.  The simple sentiment is from WMS stamped in Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink. 

I handcut my image, adding an adhesive pearl heart to her pocket and an orange resin flower to her hat.  I'm really pleased with my colouring, I'm still learning but enjoying any improvements I make.  I layered the papers and added a paper doily behind the image.  Finishing with a little button twine bow, a couple of roses and some white crochet lace.  

(* just realised I forgot to include a button on my card - sorry Zuzana!)
