Oldie but a Goodie - Lace, Pins & Pearls

Today sees the first Oldie but a Goodie Challenge of 2013...and the theme is:

'Lace, Pins & Pearls'

Our sponsor for this challenge is:

And here's the fabulous prize:

Almost everything I've used on my card is at least a year old...with the exception of the butterfly die ('Darla Butterfly' by Memory Box') and the embossing folder ('Whimsy' by Papermania) which were Christmas presents. The papers are from the 'Hopscotch' pad by BasicGrey...I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. I used a safety pin to attach a little heart charm to my piece of lace. The adhesive pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I'm also entyering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to Oldie but a Goodie.
