Photo Inspiration

I was just having a look through some challenges and I came across this gorgeous picture over at The Ribbon Reel.

 and straight away I thought of Christmas, which I thought was a bit strange seen as there is nothing to do with Christmas in the photo. I think it is because I am in Christmas mode at the moment and I have made a start on my cards for this year.  The challenge is to create a card/project inspired by the photo and include a damask pattern and ribbon/lace and also use a neutral colour palette.
Here is my card:

I have used papers from Pink Petticoat called perfect papers and the Christmas tree is from a stamp set from Annabelle Stamps.  I then made some of my organza flowers to match the dress in the picture and used some gem brads for the centre's.  I have added a couple of rows of lace to the bottom of the tree and added some twine to finish.

The layout for the card is taken from the challenge at  The Sweet Stop.
