Ribbons, Lace and Pearls

Jackie is hosting our challenge today at Crafty Cardmakers and her theme is 'Ribbons/Lace and Pearls', so she would like to see ribbons or lace, {or both} AND pearls on your creations.
For my DT card I made this -

Ribbons, pearls and lace HAS to be vintage and shabby as far as I'm concerened! 
It gave me an opportunity to dig out this much neglected stamp which is I think perfect for a vintage look.
Stamped it straight onto coloured cardstock, and coloured the roses slightly with Distress Inks. Added some pearls for the buttons (very fiddly - took me ages!!) and tied a tiny shoestring bow in the same colour as the backing card.
Ripped and distressed the edges.
The other papers are oddments from various pads - spotty one first, (Prima Botanicals) then overlaid with some very broad cream lace. Next layer paper is from 5th Avenue pad (a scrap I had left), and two pre cut pieces from a Paris themed paper pack from Craftwork (I think!).
All stitched then overlaid with another piece of lace before adding the stampoed image.
The large lace 'rose' is a recycled piece from a very very old sweater  and I stuck a white pearl in the centre.
Two more pearls added and the inside decorated to match.

How lovely Viv, a wonderful take on the theme.

Wondered if you were in the stands Saturday and feeling as frustrated as I was, shame some of them didn't turn up on the pitch.
