Here is my take on the challenge:

This card uses a sneak peek of The Good Seed Stamp set to be released on September 1st at Our Daily Bread Designs.  The dp is Basic Grey Porcelain.  The doily is aCheery Lynn Canadian Kaleidoscope  die.  The leaf flourish is also from Cheery Lynn and is called Fanciful Flourish. The flowers are from ZVA Creative and Wild Orchids (larger pink open roses). The lace is pink lace from May Arts. The pearls are ZVA creative.

Here is the inside of the card using a sentiment from the sneak peek Garden Tag set at ODBD.
