Colonial for a Queen

I made my card today for the Queen on SCS and I really like it but when I tweaked my photo it looks too orange. It really isn't that bright irl.

The new Queen is Cathy aka cathymac and she has a yummy gallery of cards. I chose this card to case.

I stamped my lace background, then stamped the pineapple inside the frame. Just added a ribbon, sentiment, and some pearls and it is finished.

Recipe:
Stamps-Hero Arts-Lace Frame, Stampabilities-Pineapple, Inkadinkado Garden Flowers (sentiment)
Paper-PTI vintage cream, designer paper is 7gypsies Savannah Collection/Telfair
Ink-Tim Holtz Distress Ink-Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge, Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories-brown pearls, Ribbon FX

That lace frame has me riveted! I love that you did it in orange, and placed a pineapple inside. :)
