A bit of elegance

Hi All
I was asked by my sister to make a birthday card that she could give to her husband's Gran.  I decided to go for a bit of elegance.
I followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday as the starting point.  The stamp is by Kanban (The Cavendish Ladies).  I wanted quite a soft look so used chalks and highlighted the fur parts with Glamour Dust.  The papers are from a paper pack that I had (think it was Papermania).  Added some lace and ribbon across the center of the card.  The embellishments are a bow, flower, pearl stamens and a lovely feather.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday Challenge #181 - Use sketch
One Stop Craft Challenge week #157 - ribbons and lace
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #160 - spots and stripes

Thanks for looking and I love reading all your comments.
