Creative Spark Fridays

I've decided to participate whenever possible in a new (to me) weekly challenge called "Creative Spark Fridays".  Becky from The Gritty Bird is hosting the challenges, and I am excited to be part of this group!  So, without further ado, here's my Creative Spark Friday contribution:

THE WEEK'S (7/30- 8/6) SPARKS ARE-
1. *Creative Spark* Color(s)-
Lady Image is Property of Hope Wallace/Paper Relics
2. *Creative Spark* Word, Phrase or Sentence-

(oh... I love this one!)
3. *Creative Spark* Wire or Stringing Material(s)-

4. *Creative Spark* Bead Type(s)-
 Czech Glass
5. *Creative Spark* Shape(s)-

and for my mixed media gals..
6. *Creative Spark* Art Element

~~~~~~~~~~'s what I came up with:

I had purchased this beautiful mocha-colored rose trim a few weeks ago, and was really excited to see how it could fit into the color scheme of this week's challenge.

I paired the rose trim with antique lace and brown sueded leather, held together with clear rhinestone rivets.  This bracelet is now available in my etsy shop.
Take some time to go out to Becky's blog & check out the way other artists have interpreted this week's "spark".
