Holiday Mojo has Arrived - 2 challenges

Good afternoon everyone. Hope everyone is enjoying their Bank Holiday Weekend, unfortunately it doesn't seem to be a holiday up here in Scotland, however I am official off on holiday for a week - Yee Ha!!!. Not that I am going anywhere, Barry is working so therefore I am home alone - to Play!!!!. I've told El Baza that I will be really really busy about the house doing springy cleaning just shove it all in the cupboard instead....
So I have started my Sunday with a couple of challenges to brake me in gently..... Charisma Cardz challenge is "Flowers, Lace & Pearls".

I have used a lovely image by Elizabeth Bell from Sugar Nellie. Flowers & Pearl Brads are from stash and Backing Papers are from Laura Ashley & The English Paper Co. The closest I had to lace is Florist ribbon so I hope that

So during the making of this card I continually sung/hummed to myself "Sweet Little Mystery" my version didn't give it the 'da da dom' bits where I had forgotten the

The Maggie image from Sugar Nellie has been wonderfully coloured in by Lesley again with her Pro-markers. Backing papers is from a Forever Friends Decoupage Set. Ribbon and sentiments are from stash.
Back to my table to finish off 2 more cards.
