April Challenge at Bizzy Becs , Texture!

Hi Everyone,
So sorry I didn't have this posted this morning for you , but the time just got away from me this week, it must be the last minute Easter rush lol.
But now on to the exciting part , we have a brand new challenge starting today at Bizzy Becs store blog, and the challenge is TEXTURE so we are asking you to use some type of material , eg fabric, hessian , felt , lace , ribbon, doily's etc, the theme this month was chosen by our very own DT girl Sally!
This card is for my Daughters birthday and of course she is turning Sweet 16 ! The beautiful lace behind the image is from my Mum's stash , it's so , so pretty irl, and I have edged it with more off white lace , very vintage I think, I used Unwrapped Tilda which is actually from a Christmas collection, but I thought she suits any day that presents come . lol. 
The gorgeous flowers are from Bizzy Becs and WOC. I have sponged the edges of the sweetheart blossoms with Memento desert sand ink to match my colour scheme, this pic also gives you a closer look at the SB Fleur De Lis square die I used behind the image , I thought I would give it a textured look too so I sponged it with three different colours of Kaisercraft paint, Violet , Egg Shell and Coastal Blue, I just used one of those cheap kitchen sponges , I cut a little square for each colour , wet them just a touch , then dab them in the paint and then off on scrap paper , and then on to the cut out die, it's an easy technique but very effective. Just make sure you only have a little of the paint on your sponge , otherwise it gets a bit blobby lol.
Here is a close up of Tilda, I sponged around the edge with more desert sand ink and added the scroll stamp for the corners .
