Lace and Pearls

OMGosh, can you believe it's already time for another fun and exciting challenge at Elphine House Australia.  We want to see lace and pearls on your creation and you have until April the 29th to submit your entry. For more details on the challenge please stop by the EHA blog.

I've used this adorable "Fairy Faye Make A Wish" stamp by the very talented Elisabeth Bell and you can get her HERE.  Copics used:  Hair E59, 44, 15, 31, 50; Dress E40, 41, 42, 43, 44.  Star Dust Stickles for her wings and accents.  Flowers RV 11, 02, 10, 000.  Here is a closeup of the colored image and I hope you can see the  pearls for the flower centers.
Now a short funny story about how you can be thinking and not thinking at the same time.  I had planned to make a Criss-cross card but when I glued the DP on I also glued the cuts together so now it's a pocket card without the sentiment added.  Not sure what occasion I'm going to use it for but I think it's pretty and I love the DP which is by Kaiser Crafts 6x6 pad Chanteuse Collection.  The small lace is from Live and Love Crafts in Europe. I've used Liquid Pearls for the centers of the MS Eyelet Lace Around The Page punch and distressed the edges with TH Victorian Velvet.  Pearls are from my stash. 

Challenges I'm Entering:
Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Pastels & something stamped
In The Pink - More pink than any other color

I'm on a coloring frenzy today so back to my lessons on You Tube with another image to color.  Thanks so very much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.  Be sure you stop by the challenge blog to see all the amazing designs by my wonderful design team sisters.  Have a fantastic weekend!

WOW, what incredible coloring, Carol! Delightful image and I love the sparkle. I think it's just glorious as a pocket card even if you had a criss-cross in mind. If you hand't fessed up, none of us would have known. :-D
