Sugar Creek Hollow "Tic Tac Toe" Week 45

Hello Friends!!
Happy Saturday!!
We have an exciting challenge for you this week at 
Sugar Creek Hollow!
It is week #45 and we are playing "Tic Tac Toe!"

Cec created this fabby photo below ...where you can chose what three elements you would like to use in your Vintage or Shabby Chic style card this week!
I chose the lace, ribbon and pearls.  
Here is what I came up with below.
I have little pieces of lace, ribbons and pearls throughout my card.
Pin It!

  I used GIMP and some copyright free images I found on the internet to create my Valentine Collage image.  All pieces (including ribbons and lace) were inked with Ranger's Vintage photo.
I used an image of Abe Lincoln, with some flowers,  an Elephant, and a top hat.  Got rid of all the "stuff" I didn't want, and created the little ensemble above.  I love elephants!  The whole idea that they "never forget" I thought it would be fun to create this card...Especially in patriotic themes, so you will be seeing part of this again around July...LOL.
I used the Emporium Capitals font to create my text boxes, as well as pulling colors from my image to create the backgrounds.  You can see above how I elevated the text boxes and heart using the candi fix it foam pads (RRR), which allowed me to easily place the golden yellow pom pom trim (RRR) around my heart.  

The 10 cents image, and the word "Heart" image are from
Gecko Galz.  
Here is a close up below of the bottom little cluster.  I used GIMP to add the word "Kisses" to the image.
Here is a close up of the top cluster.  I used some pink mulberry roses, and ivory pearl trim from my well as the fabby ribbons from this months assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
