Love GDT @ It's All About the Vintage

Good morning beautiful people!
Checking in with you today with a special GDT post for

Thank you so much for having me girls :)
I had great fun playing along to this fortnights challenge ...

My Heart Pieces

Delicious Doodles
And ...

I was given a gorgeous image from My Heart Pieces to play with this week and this is what I created.

It always amazing when I have finished making something to see where and how the creativity of a single item can start and end.  Somedays I can pick up a piece of paper or print out an image and then things just roll and suddenly you have a finished card.  Other days it can be from looking at a photo or picking up a simple flower, ribbon or piece of lace.
Today's creations stemmed from finding this gorgeous lace hidden in 1 of several boxes in the garage that I am still yet to sort, go through, file, organize and put away.  I opened the box, my eyes found the lace, my hands grabbed for it and then it was all over, back inside to my craft room I headed before closing the box back up and popping it back on top of the other 5 that are still waiting to be 'sorted'. lol
Ben scoffed at me the moment I walked back inside the door and saw what I had in my hands, but my theory is you have to strike while Mojo is hot and Mojo was on a mission with this lace and he had his mind set on this card!  I went backwards and forwards with embellishing the flower in the middle but eventually settled on just the one flower with the pins and the pearls.  It was mighty tempting to add more flowers but I wanted to keep the focus on the lace and keep the card clean enough that each little detail all got their own moment in the spotlight too.  

Anyway's I am sure are all tired of my rambling lol 
The All about the Vinatge girls and I would love you to play along with us so please come join the challenge and check out the gorgeous works the girls have to inspire you all!

I look forward to seeing you there!
