Bah Humbug challenge...

The girls over at Bah Humbug have given yet another great challenge and this week its LACE.
I've used the bauble from the Stampin Up set 'Comtempo Christmas', added a few sparkles to the Bauble and mounted it into nesties and then added lace around the edge.
Backing papers and punches are also from S.U. along with the sentiment. Just noticed that one of my gems has fallen off the bauble so had better go and replace it.
Picking the grandchildren up today so no crafting for me until next week end....hopefully the weather will be kind for the next week.  There will be hopefully a couple of pre schedule posts but thats about it...

Brilliant card and real Christmas colours - like the way you've incorporated the lace (I'm still pondering). Hope you don't mind if I mention that you seem to be missing a small gem - maybe it has fallen off!!
