Hi! Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. It's a lovely day here but a tad on the chilly side.
I finally got around to making some cards last night and managed three (two of which fought all the way and I'm not overly happy with the outcome of either) and this one which came together in about 15 minutes!

The image is from Delicious Doodles, die cut with a Spellbinders oval nestie and mounted onto a scalloped nestie. The gorgeous lace is from Joanna Sheen and comes in three different colours - I had to have all three! Ribbon and pearls are from my stash.

Challenges entered:
Delicious Doodles - Bingo (ribbon, DD image and pearls)
Joanna Sheen - flower power
Cutie Pie Challenge - monochromatic
Crazy Amigo - flowers
Divas by Design - monochromatic
Paper Pretties - flowers
4 Crafty Chicks - favourite embellishment (lace/ribbon/pearls)
Allsorts - black and white
