Oh Baby, Lace, Pins and Pearls!!

Hello Everybody,
I hope all is well with you
and that you have been having some
sweet crafty time for yourself!!
It's Wednesday and than means
it is time for a new challenge over at
Creative Inspirations,
and a gorgeous one it is,
we'd like to see you use
Lace, Pins and Pearls
on your projects.
A challenge for some,
nearly a guarantee for me,
I love the frilly stuff!!

I've had Elisabeth Bell curiosities for some time now, she makes the cutest little animals alongside her adorable dollie-like images, so I had a little spend over at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. I happened to stumble over there on release day for the third sampler Elisabeth Bell has made for Susana's shop and this image is called Oh Baby from that collection. How lucky was that??!?! And what's even better, my order was processed that same day and I received it 2 days later, now THAT is service!! Also from SCACD are those little coral hued primas, they are the ones in the middle of the flower medley.

Papers are from DCWV, lace, pearls and pins are from my stash, I coloured the image in distress inks and the dress has been Stickled where I thought there ought to be some light reflection going on, it's polyester, lol. I cut out the image and adhered it to a circle with a shadowed image underneath, gives good dimension. And I guess that's that...

Other challenges I'll pop this in at:
Cupcakes Craft Challenge Round and Round
Saturday Spotlight Clean it up!!

Thanks for popping in,
I hope you will have some crafty time this week
so you can join in with the challenge at
Creative Inspirations,
a yummy prize is lined up for one lucky contestant
and the Design Team has prepared a
feast for your eyes to be inspired by!!
Take Care Friends,
