Alphabet Challenge - "L" is for Lace

Hello my dears... how was your weekend? 
I hope it was a good one...I have being fulfilling another role this week at work.. and that meant I got a full weekend at home -Yay! so hubs and I got a full 2 days together... which is lovely.
So, the start of the week again... this means a whole bunch of challenges ahead, but I quickly wanted to share this with you...
 As, you may have seen it was my birthday last Tuesday, and I share it with one of the girls I work with... my hubby's aunt AND Granny..!!!
This is a card I made for his Aunt....
You may have also spotted it on the Spectrum Noir blog too.... I have the colours listed there..... 

I am trying to advance my colouring skills, and I am trying to add folds into fabric with my pens, not essentially where the image has suggested folds and pleats drawn in.. if I am making sense??? It is still a work in progress, but I kinda liked the finished effect on this...

 The image is one of the two Flower Fairies from Sylvia Zet... I do love this pair.... the first one I coloured up you can see here... 
the papers are Carina Gardner - Victorian Garden from Jessica Sprague... flowers , alce and seam binding ribbon from stash.
