It's our Monthly Blog Hop at Mo's Digital Pencil!!!

Yes - it's time for our monthly blog hop at Mo's Digital Pencil!!
This month the theme has been chosen by the awesome Debbie and she has picked Pearls and Lace.

If you've come straight here and want to play along, pop on over to Debbie's Blog to kick off.  If you're already hopping, you need to go next to Heidy's Blog.  Don't forget too, to leave a  comment on all the Dream Team's cards because hidden amongst us are a couple of spot prizes of  a $5 dollar voucher to spend at Mo's Digital Pencil!!

 Now you might be looking at my card and thinking, what???? or where???  However, I so wanted to use this brilliant new Dare image (found here) from Mo's Digital Pencil that I've made the theme fit!! My pearls are black, although there is also a little cream one just in case.  I have also coloured a piece of vintage lace with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and then tied it in the knot to make it look a bit more masculine.
My papers are Bo Bunny Time Piece and just seem to match this dreamboat perfectly!!"  If anybody wants to know what I'd like for Christmas .........!

Do hope you will play along with us!!  I know I shall be hopping as I can't wait to see the rest of the Team's makes - I'm sure they'll be stunning!!

I'm also entering my card into the following:
365 Cards - Sketch
Cards for Men - Anything Goes
