My Idea - Cluny Lace Doily with 3D Roses

I was working on the Fall Color Project I showed the motif of earlier, when I had a new idea and just had to try it!

I have some designs of Cluny Lace that I really like -- so I took a look and could envision these 3D Roses around it.

I crocheted the Cluny Lace piece and then figured how big the space was for the flower.

I have quite a lot of crochet thread in different sizes -- I chose the size 30 thread in the variegated thread of cream, light green and light-medium pink. I did a 3-layer, 8-petal round Rose - and added a 4th layer with slightly elongated petals in a dark green.

With the contrast of the light 3D flower on the dark green larger petals - around a cream doily, it looked just as romantic as I wanted it to!
