Lets Get Shabby Challenge #21

It's the weekend - YAY - we are having a spell of very hot weather here in the West - yesterday I had a lovely day crafting with a friend - it was nice to stay in the cool and just enjoy some cardmaking.
  As previously mentioned, I'm guest designer over at Let's Get Shabby!!    The challenge is to use Lace & Denim in your creation - such a great challenge as I love both of these and had a great time getting this LO together.  Thanks for having me ladies!  It's lovely to work with such a talented bunch - there creations are really just BEAUTIFUL.
Here's my LO:

 This is a picture of my and hubby taken by my sister who is just amazing behind the camera - I love how she made the picture look a little vintage.  There's some lace and denim going on in the picture too!
I've used a Webster Page as my base - Your Life. Beautiful. Here are some close-up's:
 Here you can see the lace and denim detail - I've stitched in the middle of the denim to create a ruffle.
I've added the chipboard branch from Stuff 2 Scrap to the top of this with pearl sprays and flowers.
 Matha Stewart butterfly with sprinkles of tiny crochet flowers, pearl hearts and rhinestones.
The large flower is by Prima and I've also used some ruffled lace along the bottom edge - lots of pretty things happening in this LO.
I love how it turned out and it was great to play around with some 'girly' embellishments and make it all beautiful.
Pop over to the Let's Get Shabby blog to view details of this challenge - My Etsy store - Creative Bits is sponsoring this challenge so we would love to see you join in.  I'm looking forward to seeing all your lovely creations.
Have a great weekend and happy crafting.
