Decorative Comb for the Reception

Hi Dreamers,
No card today!  I was occupied making this decorated comb for my future niece to wear at the reception.  The wedding is Saturday.   The colors are Red and Purple.   Take a look.

I started by making  a sleeve from  white satin fabric.  The sleeve slips over the top of the comb.  I gathered a price of lace fabric and shaped it into a fan.  Then stitched it down.  I added the large pearl button.....yes that is a button.  Then glued a string of red pearls.  I added individual pearls too.  Then wrapped a piece of purple tulle around the bottom.

Well, I hope the bride likes it....

A few fun Challenges:
Oldie but a goodie: anything but a card and use something from stash.  I used the lace fabric that I have had in my stash for awhile....
Tip Top Tuesday: use something from your stash....the lace fabric
Crafting from the heart: anything goes

Just a quick post.  Gotta run!  See you soon.  Love ya.
