Elphine House Australia - Pearls and Lace!

Good Morning! What a horrible miserable day it is. Before i tell you about my card i just want to send my love to those who have been affected by the awful bombings in Boston. Its just awful and so unnecessary. I cant imagine what the families affected are going through. 

Now onto my card. Today is the start of the latest challenge from Elphine House Australia!

The challenge is "Pearls and Lace"
This one is easy for me because i love using both and do so on many cards. I have a little obsession for lace and cant go near a craft shop without checking out the lace. I was in Edinburgh last week and in John Lewis's they had the most extravagant lace i think i have seen. It was so tempting but it was way to expensive to buy to use on cards. This was wedding dress quality!
To join in with this challenge you must use a Elisabeth Bell stamp. This can be from any company she has designed for but we would love to see your Elphine House Australia stamps if you have any. 

Here is my card...

Materials used..
