Pearls and Lace - Timeless Tuesday 241

Welcome back to another Timeless Tuesday Challenge! I hope you all got a chance to enter the Guest Designer contest we had running this last week.  Best of luck to those of you who did!!  Looking over the entries, I know it will be a hard one to judge.  They were all fabulous entries.

This week, Cheryl is hosting our challenge in lieu of Judy.  Unfortunately, Judy's mother had passed and she will be sitting out in this weeks challenge.  I certainly wish Judy and her family much comfort and prayers during this difficult time.  And thank you Cheryl for stepping in! Judy's challenge is:

You really can't get more beautiful than Lace and Pearls! And the possibilities of using both elements is endless.  For my creation, I decided to use some actual lace fabric I had for a few years and make a background using it.

 I thought it would make for a beautiful setting to the Dahlia set I used for my main image.  I colored in the Dahlia using the following Copic colors and cut it out to be popped over the Flourishes Perfectly Pierced hourglass die set.

I stamped the sentiment from the set directly on the main panel and finished off the card with some pearls.  I really liked how this turned out and will just have to think of other uses for this lace I have sitting around! :) 
Thanks so much for stopping in and don't forget to check out the other fabulous creations from the Timeless Tuesday team!
