Happy Friday Everyone!! I can't believe it is Friday already!! Wow!!  Time really does go so fast.  Still can't believe summer is over and fall is here!!

Today I have a Wags n Whiskers challenge to share with you.  This week's challenge is hosted by
EmmaEmma's challenge is to use diamonds and pearls on your creation.

A random winner will receive one free Wags 'n Whiskers stamp of your choice!!
But remember, you must use a Wags 'n Whiskers image (digi or rubber) to be entered into the drawing for the prize.
And if you would like to be a guest for our next challenge, add "DT" next to your name when you enter this week's challenge. 
Here is my take on the challenge:

I decided to challenge myself even further by making an all white creation except for my image.  This image is Wags n Whiskers- Say a prayer from the Spring time fun collection illustrated by Crissy Armstrong.  I paper pieced her with Parisian Breeze paper retired from Stampin Up.  The background is embossed and I added some lace and pearls.  The image is framed with the Spellbinders Beaded Oval die.  Rhinestones were added for the "diamonds". The layout uses the Midnight Madness sketch:
For more inspiration for the Wags n Whiskers challenge, please visit my dt sisters:

Melanie, Sharon, Karen, Tina, Michele, Jeanette, Lacey, Nikki, Crystal, Angelique, Debs, Louise, Emma and Tracy.

If you join the challenge, please link a direct link to Iklinkz here.
