lace and pearls

I am really pleased at how this card turned out. I have managed to combine several challenges with it. I edged the blue papers with a darker blue ink pad, and also the nestie scalloped oval which I cut on my lovely cuttlebug (however did I manage without one!) The stamp is a Penny Black one called Constellations, and I have added a little sparkle with a Sakura pen. I made the hat pin by adding some pretty blue beads and pearls to a long pearl headed pin. Also added pearls to the bottom strip.
First up for Pearls and Lace
Next - using hatpins
