Penny Black Challenge #67 - Lace & Pearls

Hello again, and welcome once more to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Thanks to everyone who joined in last week's challenge with Domi's wonderful sketch - sorry I haven't been around much this week to look at all your entries, but I'm sure they were all fabulous as usual!!
This week we would like to see your projects that contain

Lace & Pearls

The only rule, as usual, is that you should use a Penny Black stamp or sticker somewhere on your creation.

And once again we have another fab prize on offer, which is a selection of "October Afternoon" papers from Kath's local craft shop Simply Create.

As usual the DT have been weaving some PB magic, so I hope you'll stop by their blogs and check them out.

Here is my card for this week - this was a great challenge for me, as I absolutely adore both lace and pearls so i didn't need to be asked twice to incorporate them into my card!

Main image: Penny Black "Crossing Bridges" (3206J), watercoloured and decorated with tiny pearl gems;
Sentiment: Penny Black "Happy Birthday" (2912D);
Papers: BasicGrey "Porcelain";
Supplies: Poppicraft flowers were a birthday RAK from Helen, pink dotty ribbon and lace from Hobbycraft; butterfly charm from Dolls Made Up; large spacer from Quixotic Paperie; pearl brad and pink butterfly gem by Papermania; pearl gems from my stash.
Tools: pink pearlescent card embossed using new Cuttlebug "Daisy Pattern" embossing folder; leaves cut using Leone Em "Ash Family" punch.

Hopefully I will get a bit more time to get round and view all your creations this week - looking forward to seeing them! Have a great week.
