It's week #157 over at I ♥ PROMARKERS and this week's theme is Lace and Pearls.  We have two sponsors this week too, MARIANNE DESIGN and STITCHY BEAR STAMPS, so there'll be two lucky winners next week.
The Stitchy image I chose to use is called, would you believe...FLUFF, lol.  Sorry, it just makes me chuckle.    It makes me think of my late Dad, he called everybody's girlfriends or whatever 'bits of fluff'.  Bless him.  Talking about my dad, he's been gone 13 years and not a day passes that I don't think of him and miss him.  He would have been 90 today so a drop of whisky is called for in his memory methinks.

My dotty background was done using a 6" Embossalicious folder. I used 2 Marianne dies to cut the black frame and a Marianne clock die.  The black lace and pearls are from my stash and I did a computer generated sentiment. The pearls on her bodice are done with White Opal liquid pearls.
