Southern Girls Challenge 19

Back again with my second post of the day,please scroll down for my previous post. This is my Southern Girls DT card where the challenge this week is Lace and Pearls.I love this Paper Shelter image,she's a dream to colour,I teamed her up with some magazine freebie papers and some left overs from my drawer, I then lightly distressed the edges of each cut using a deep lilac chalk eye. Now I didn't get organised before making my card and found myself searching through my sewing box finding some lace I bought to make tie backs years ago and some pearl beads I'd removed from a dress I bought that turned out to be a BIG mistake,(big being the operative word,it made me look like a beached whale!) anyway,I wore it once,and in a mood,after seeing myself in the mirror,removed the beads and threw it in the bin. (I'm not usually wasteful lol!)
 Anyway, as usual the great sponsors for this fortnight's challenge are Paper Shelter and Stitchy Bear. Remember to check out what the rest of the Southern Girls have created!
I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
KBcute 13,Anything digi,
Lexis 40,Spots or stripes,
StampsRus,Go Digital,
I Did It Creation 55,Lace and ribbon.
The Paper Shelter14,Distress to impress,

Julie.x
