Lace and Pearls



Time to get your girly on as our challenge this time at The Paper Shelter Challenge our theme is Lace and Pearls. I decided to choose Victorian Beauty to make my card. To me she just screams lace and pearls. I added some pretty die cut lace and inked the edges to make them pop. Pearls were added to the lace, dress bows, mirror and just for accent. I used some liquid glass on the mirror for some shine. So hop on over to The Paper Shelter and check out the lovely stamps you have to choose from and join in on the the fun. You cannot beat the deals you can find at The Paper Shelter!
I am entering this card at the following challenge:

My Song: A Sweet Old Fashioned Girl (Teresa Brewer)
Scoobley-doo-bee-doo
Be-doo-be-doo-be-doo-be-doo
Wouldn't anybody care to meet a sweet old-fashioned girl?
Scoobley-dah-doo-bee-dumb
Wouldn't anybody care about a sweet old-fashioned pearl?
Scoobley-doo-bee-dumb
Who's a frantic little bopper in some sloppy socks
Just a crazy rock'n'roller, little Goldilocks
Wouldn't anybody care to meet a sweet old-fashioned girl?
Doesn't anybody care to hear some sweet old-fashioned talk?
A-scoobley-doo-bee-dumb
Wouldn't anybody like to take a nice old-fashioned walk?
Scoobley-doo-bee-dumb
Take a walk around the corner where the cats all stop
Where you dig the juicy ribs and then you'll dance that bop
Wouldn't anybody like to take a nice old-fashioned walk?

Time For A Wedding

 A closer look!
 Lots of sparkle and bling!
The right inside of my card!
 The left inside of my card.
A dear friend and our local youth pastor is attending his niece's wedding. He asked me to do a 'special' card for him. This is what I came up with. The pretty embossing is a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The outside die cut is from Heartfelt Creations. Pearls, liquid pearls, some pretties from Queen & Co. finish off this wedding card. 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
 
My Song: Chapel of Love (The Beach Boys)
Going to the chapel
And we're gonna get married
Going to the chapel
And we're gonna get married
Gee I really love you
And we're gonna get married
Going to the chapel of love
Spring is here (ooo-ooo-ooo)
The sky is blue (sky is blue)
Birds all sing (oh the birds all sing)
Like they do (yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah)
Today's the day (wah-hooo-oooo)
We'll say "I do" (ooo-oooo)
And we'll never be lonely anymore

I am entering this card at the following challenges:  
My Song: Run, Run, Look, and See (Bryan Hyland)

Run, run, look and see
Run, run, look and see
I thought I saw you yesterday
I could have sworn you'd passed my way
But it was too good to be true
And there was nothing I could do
My heart says:
Run, run, look and see
Are my eyes just foolin' me?
While I'm runnin', I keep prayin'
All the time my heart keeps sayin':
Run, run, look and see
Run, run, look and see

Every night I hope and pray
A dream lover will come my way
