Shabby card for Mother's Day

Exactly a week left to Mother's Day (it's on the 26th of May in Poland)  so it's time to get my card on it's way!
Let's talk layers, shall we ;) I decided for a very shabby and very romantic card this year.

 Some close ups:

It looks like a million layers, mainly thanks to this gorgeous accordion base which I got at Papierowa Galanteria. I've only added some scraps of paper and paper doilies, along with some bits of real lace. The base cardstock itself is so decorative with its beautiful shabby creme tone that it doesn't need a full coverage-it even shouldn't have it :)
The paper scraps are from UHK Gallery Winter is coming-randomly coloured with pink watercolour and Perfect Pearls patina (blended with water) to reveal the resist patterns of the paper.
The beautiful roses are fussy cut stamped images using La Blanche stamps.
I had a great time playing with this card, no exact measures or anything, just playing with layers and colour :) Felt almost like art journaling ;)

Wishing you all a great week!

This looks wonderful.. and I am discovering the impact stamps can have, either by just adding to a back ground or making embellishments..

Miło zobaczyć polski akcent na Twoim projekcie.
Kartka świetnie zrobiona. Mnóstwo pracy widać w nią włożyłaś.
