Emma's Crafty Challenge #18

Welcome to Emma's Crafty Challenge #18. Thank you to all those who took part in our Buttons and Bows challenge, your entries were fabulous. The lucky winner will be announced in a few days.
The theme for Challenge #18 is:
"Lace and Pearls"
and it's being sponsored by the lovely Tina Warwood who is generously offering a prize of a Frou Frou papercrafting and digikit CD-Rom and two stamp sets. A photo of the prize is below.
Most of us regularly use lace and pearls in our crafty projects and we look forward to seeing what you create with them.
Just to give you a couple of ideas, I've used two different types of "pearls" on my DT card.


I started by matting and layering a blue and a white Papermania textured card. I wrapped a length of lace around them before attaching to an 8"x 8" card blank. The sentiment was printed on the computer and mounted onto a Spellbinder die-cut. 


I used Cosmic Shimmer liquid pearls to create the swirly flourish. I plotted it out in pencil first.


I tied a bow with lace and made three stick pins with "pearls" and beads. The lace was originally white and I coloured it with an Arctic Blue Promarker.

This is the fabulous Frou Frou prize you could be winning. 
Please visit the Emma's Crafty Challenge Blog for a full set of rules and to see the wonderful inspirational projects from the DT.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Card and Scrap - use lace or tape
Creative Card Crew - no designer paper
