Allsorts and a new purchase

The Allsorts challenge this week is lace and or buttons so I went for lace- this was a bit of a fluke actually- I was making this card last night and when I saw the challenge today I thought ah, I have the very card that fits that challenge
used distress inks and white dabber, Tim Holz stamps, ribbon from Stampin Up, grunge board wings and red flower from stash
Went shopping today with mother and when I saw this coat I just had to have it- think I will be eating toast on beans for a month to pay for it but I fell in loooove with it
Doesn't show up well in the photo but it is lower at the front than the back and the back has a lovely lace up detail- if it was a piece of card I would describe it as black with a pearalised embossed design with big metal button details
Think cause its black it doesn;t show up well in the photo but it is goorrrgeous- just need to go somewhere nice now to wear it

Enjoy your Saturday evening
