Crafting Musketeers challenge 28

This is my design card for Crafting Musketeers challenge 28: use this sketch:

Please click on the link to see the rest of the designs from team B and click here to join in the challenge and see the lovely crafting of team A as well, if you haven't done so already.

The background paper of my card is from a booklet of The country diary of an Edwardian lady papers with a piece of purple Hot off the press paper matted on to it. The oval die cuts were some I recently recently as a prize. I used some snippet pieces of lace across the middle, although I didn't have enough to go all the way across, so careful placement of the ovals with foam pads hid the gap. The oval was stamped with one of my all time Penny Black favourites, sparklers, inked with Stazon gothic purple.
