Vintage, in black and cream

Finally!  I got to use a bit of some new Recollections DP (toile) I bought a few days ago. This is a look I really like but struggle to create.  For a touch of spring I used the parasol from Blooming with Happiness (SU), colored with gold and black Spicas for sparkle.  I chalked the edge of this panel as well as the DP strip - to better match the cream bg of the base.  The sentiment is stamped on vanilla cs, and backed with an embossed CB strip.  The circles are Nesties.  They do not show well but there are 3 cream half pearls in the corner, and I tied gold cord through the button.
Blossoms and bow:
