Diamonds and Pearls

Happy Thursday everyone,

Two weeks ago Lili's Little Fairies were asking for a GDT, I entered my card into the challenge and applied for the GDT spot. They were having trouble picking two (they eventually chose three) so the list wasn't up till later in the day. I kept checking to see who the lucky ladies were, never expecting to be me and I was so shocked and pleased when I saw my name on the list. So I'm one of the GDT for the next 4 weeks, YAYYY!!!

The theme this week is 'Diamonds and Pearls', and here's my card.

I've coloured Positively Pampered in with Distress Inks, and covered her wings in Glamour Dust. I've used glossy accents on the mirror to make it shine. The flowers, pearls, lace and seam binding are all from Wild Orchid Crafts, the Diamond swirl is from The Ribbon Girl.

I've used Pion paper and distressed the edges with walnut stain, I've used one of the new doohickey border dies too. I've decorated the inside of the card to match the front, not something I do often enough as I think it really makes the card special.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all of the girls over at Lili's Little Fairies for asking me, it really did make my day.


  1. You have no need to be nervous hun, your cards are gorgeous! I saw this on the LLF blog earlier and oohed and aahed over it. Beautiful colours and so much pretty detail. Simply stunning sweetie. Hugs Sxx

  2. Congrats on the DT position Becky, it's not surprising they picked you as your cards are always beautiful, this one is no exception, it's stunning. xx

  3. Ohhhhh just LOVE this!!! You give such inspiration to me!

  5. Hi Becky
    Firstly your card is beautiful, so pretty, also love how you have decorated the inside to match the front. Now on to the next part, I'm sorry if it sound's like I'm nagging (BUT I am old so hope I can be excused) lol. I can not understand WHY you should have been shocked to find that you had been chosen for the G.D.T. Lili's Little Fairie's challenge. Becky your cards are O.O.T.W. they are works of art, with such beautiful/delicate/special details that make your cards such a joy to look at. You really MUST start believing more in yourself Becky, I personally am surprised that more D.T's. are not asking you to join them.
