Beauty

I love the elegance in this layout!  The "beauty" is my mom at age 18.
 I used the Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace border punch on several strips of white cardstock and layered it.

My layout is based on the new sketch reveal today at Frosted Designs Sketch Along Tuesdays Challenge.

Here are a few closeups:

Oh, Debbie! What a stunning layout!
At first, I thought that you used a lacy cs, but then I read your explanation and WOW! so simple and yet so elegant!
I love the white with the contrast color of the flowers.
Thanks for a wonderful sketch. I loved playing with it.
Have a great day.
