Pearls and Lace

Oh Cathy, head mistress of Totally Papercrafts, you are killing me with this week's challenge - Pearls and Lace! ;-) I'm strictly a blue jean & sweatshirt kind of gal - frilly stuff is not my thing. But, in the name of being a good DT member (LOL!), here is my card:

I must admit that I do like this Martha Stewart lacy border punch, though, and it was a good excuse to actually use some of the pearls I've somehow managed to collect. :)

I wanted to combine this week's challenge with a few other challenges, so I chose the colors to go with the BV color challenge on the iCopic blog (I used BV00, BV02 and BV04). And I chose a Miss Anya stamp because this week's Farm Fresh Challenge also called for lace. I'm also submitting this card into the Simon Says Stamp "Anything Goes" challenge (you can find the Anya stamps in their shop), Cute Card Thursday's "You're a Gem!" challenge and into My Mums' Craft Shop's "Flowers" challenge. (I didn't add any flowers to my card, but there are flowers on the DP.) My layout is based on an old sketch (#114) from the Card Patterns blog. (I love their sketches.)

Be sure to head on over to the Totally Papercrafts challenge blog to check out the other DT members' cards and to play along yourself. You could win a gift certificate from the fabulous Emma of Crafty Emma's Store.
