Mind Wide Open Challenge~February

Here is the image Gail over at Mind Wide Open provided for this month's challenge. She always comes up with the most amazing images!!
And here is my interpretation. I slipped the image into a vintage photo album sleeve and the purple tones of the image just popped out. So I went with that...scrounged around in my lace basket and found this lovely violet-hued lace with glimmers of gold.
Added sweet velvet purple pansies and green velvet leaves..embellished with buttons and pearls along with dewdrops of  'diamonds' on each flower.
'Twas a fun project!!
A little loop of tatting creates the hanger..
Pop over to Mind Wide Open to see other creations using this image and vote for your favorite!!

Oh my does that say it all. Hope all is well with you and hope you enjoyed a wonderful Valentine's day with your wonderful guy. We are so lucky, aren't we?!!
