Wow Melody, another beautiful card. This time you've outdone yourself - incredible details and I can't believe your perfect cutting, especially around those lights. The lace is absolutely gorgeous encircling the oval panel and touched off with those wonderful pearls too. Fabulous card and take on the sketch. Thanks for sharing this beautiful card with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!
