A card for a dear friend

Hi all
Here is a card I have made for a dear friend ....she loves vintage quirky things so I hope this fits the bill...I used  polka dot and striped cardstock from Anna Marie designs ...the edges were distressed with a TH distress tool and  old paper distress ink. The flowers  which are deep cream not yellow !!are from wild orchid.  The lace and ribbon is from my stash ..The pearls I won in a challenge and  are from flourish with a bling .The foliage die is from joy crafts  the leaves die are from spellbinders and the sentiment is from  a Stamping bella set .I stamped the panel with wording using an indigoblu script stamp
