...of Lace and Pearls

Hidy Ho, fellow crafty people! It's challenge time over at CCCC! This is Challenge #10. Wow, time flies. This week's challenge is "Pearls and Lace" and is sponsored by the talented folks at Sassy Studio!

It's a pretty straight-forward challenge--the projects have to have pearls and lace on them. Ya know... I'd like to see someone do an UBER masculine card with a construction worker or NASCAR driver or something that OOZES testosterone and incorporate pearls and lace on it. Wouldn't that be a challenge???

Anyway, I digress. Here is my card using their Victorian Beauty stamp. I cut the top flap of the card "short" so that the curved Nestability acts as the right edge of the face of the card with the pale patterned-paper interior peeking out the side.

I'd like to enter this in The Spotted Chick's --That's Krafty Thursday #60.
