lace and pearls

At the Harrogate show back in March I got carried away and bought some fancy shaped cards which is something I never use, the stand had used this stamp with their cards so had to have it as well. anyhow I decided I would have a go at making one of their fancy cards, well clever me had the fancy card upside down when I stamped onto it, typical of me ! so I just decided fancy cards aren't for me and die cut the image with this pretty floral oval. Couple of layers of lace and a few pearls here and there and I like it a lot better than the fussy thing I started out to do. A few challenges:
