Magnolia Lace Border Card - Special monthly challenge

I wanted to create a card with neutral colours, lol, my headache probably influenced this decision, anything too bright would have hurt.  I've no particular sentiment to write on this card just the enjoyment of making it.

I've used Derwent Inktense pencils to watercolour Tilda. Plain white cardstock for the main card, pale Ivory card  with distressed edges for the centre square.  Plain grey card is used for the upper and lower border.  Centre circle made with ivory card cut, embossed and edged with blue pigment ink.  I've made the bead tree thingy with spare glass beads and wire, there are also two Mother of Pearl discs on the tree but the camera has not picked up on this, pity as they are real pretty.  Border completed with lace trim.  Flowers and hearts complete the card. 

This is my entry for Just Magnolia challenges - Lace Borders
