Just Magnolia - Pleated Lace

The challenge this month over at Just Magnolia is to add pleated lace to your DP or Image and I've added it to my image. It was flippin' testy getting the lace to fold and eventually I used a needle and cotton to tack it. Naturally this is hidden from sight.  Hope you like my take on the challenge.  I've used Fairy Dust Tilda, kindly stamped for me by my friend Paola.  Ain't she a little doll? Just love her!
I went for soft pink and peachy pink with this card. Don't you just love that glitter pink paper around Tilda? Unfortunately no name to pass on, but it's divine. Wanted to punch a butterfly with my MS punch, but it was too thick.  The little bouquet of flowers on the right is what I picked up from a store where the owner makes wedding cards. I fell in love with it and have had it for ages, seemed appropriate to use with this colour scheme. Further embellies, lovely pink flat backed pearls from Paola's shop. Received my new Petit Oval Nesties. It may be 'old hat' for a lot of you , but I've just received these and am terribly excited. You'll be seeing alot of them!

A close up as per usual. Now you can really see that lovely pink glitter paper I mentioned earlier.

It's so cold at the moment.  Made home made soup for lunch.... yummy, that type of weather!  Better get the heater on.  Take care and wrap up warmly (SA girls), hugs Sharon x
