31DC2015 - Delicate - Our wedding china

I've always interpreted the delicate prompt to be something that is delicate, rather that doing an actual delicate print on my nails, such a fine filigree designs or lace.  My first year I chose some on my mum's Noritake china, and last year I chose our Swarovski crystal wine glasses.  

This year I pulled out my husbands and my wedding china, which is the full place setting of Mikasa china, in a design called 'Millefleur'.  This is the china setting that we rarely use, cause we are too scared to break it, so most of the time it sits in the display cabinet collecting dust.

I'm so pleased with how this came out.  It's not the most perfect design, cause it's all free hand. Of course I would have loved to find a stamping plate that had the exact pattern, cause then my lines and dots would have been nearly perfect, but still I think this is really special.  Probably because it means something to me.
