PBSC - Lace & Pearls / Singalong Saturday

Cough, sniff ..... hello, yep only me and I have a really horrid cold :o(
So I am going to feel sorry for myself all day because I feel so grotty - I am meant to be going to an engagement party tonight so hope I feel a bit better and I hope my nose doesn't look too much like Rudolph's (typical when I want to look nice). Enough of my moaning, we have a gorgeous challenge for you on Penny Black this week .....


As soon as I heard the theme I thought of weddings - and what better PB image than this vintage stamp. This is the first time I have coloured it and I wasn't sure about colours but I think it has worked out fine in the end. The BG papers are just lovely with all the beautiful swirls and I have used a peachy coloured pearlescent card which really shimmers IRL.

The gorgeous lace and lace flowers (which were a ribbon until I chopped it up, eek) were part of the lovely RAK sent to me by Terry (thanks hun). What perfect timing with this lovely gift because they were just what my card really needed! My usual adhesive pearls to the corners help complete my card.
My card also fits with this weeks Cupcake craft challenge which is pearls and swirls .... perfect!
I hope you all have a chance to play along with us this week, PB challenges are always fun, and with so many images to choose from they are always so different. Have a great Saturday!


I couldn't think what to play for you today so I have chosen one of my fave songs - hope you like it .... you really need the sound up loud (and a couple of drinks are optional, lol)

Have a great day!
