a closer look, the doily is heat embossed on gold shimmery vellum for Patty's the colors of Oct. Birthstone Opals challenge. you can read the details for that here. As someone with an Oct. birthday I have never considered anything but, Opals as "real" the pink stones became "alternate" birthstones sometime when I was growing up, and I remember ( this is a funny thing for someone who likes PINK) thinking they just looked fake. ( and I have always thought that)
the bloom is from wild orchid crafts, the happiness is from the background stamp with that name from su , its also heat embossed but on some baked brown sugar and up on pop dots. the yellow lace is vintage. This one is 5" square in real life.
