Buttons and lace at Orange Paperie

The challenge at Orange Paperie was a sketch challenge with a heart on the left hand side and the topic of love. I started with the 2 papers in lemon and black.(Love that combo). The heart was machine stitched to the backing.Then looking at my 2 photos which were taken looking out a window, I came up with the idea of yellow lace gathered above the photo.It looks a bit like cafe curtains.Then I machine sewd the black and white ribbon across the top of the gathered lace and added buttons. Finally I added my title and journalling with a few embellishments,including another button.
