Happy Today - FFFC #112 Pearls and Lace

Hello.  Happy Friday!

Today we're starting a new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.  Our hostess is the lovely Ivonne and the new theme is 'Pearls and Lace'.  This challenge is being sponsored by Marianne Designs.  Make sure you pop over to Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge to get complete details of the challenge and how you can join in the fun.  And also check out the fabulous cards that my DT teammates have created to inspire you.

This is my DT card for the challenge...

I have used a few of our sponsor's Creatable dies to create the floral arrangements:

- LR0130 Designer Doily set (for the flower)
- LR0133 Open Flower Classic set (for the leaves)
- LR0249 Tiny Flower 2 (swirls/flourishes)

This beautiful image designed by Krista Smith...

is called Princess Rose Red.  It is a digi stamp and can be found at Krista's online shop Saturated Canary.

Challenges for this card:
