Pearls at The Ribbon Girl

Hi my lovelies,
I hope you're having a lovely weekend, September already and as it's the first Sunday of the month it's time for another fantastic challenge at The Ribbon Girls Blog and this month our card challenge is Add Pearls.

Isn't this just the best challenge, at The Ribbon Girl there are so many gorgeous pearl things to choose from. I've coloured Little Tilda in with Distress Markers, I've also used the same red to colour some Cream Kort and Godt Chrysanths as I wanted the same colour in my flowers.

The papers are Christmas Paper Pad from Maja Design, these are gorgeous and I managed to get my sticky mits on two pads :). I've used 20mm Lace and Pearl Trim and so that my image didn't stand proud I carefully removed the pearls, with a craft knife, that would have been under the image, and then used the pearls in my flowers.

I've got two 13mm Diamante Spacers with 8mm Ivory Flat Back Pearls. I've also stuck several 5mm Self Adhesive Ivory Pearls on the card. I've distressed the Kraft with Walnut Stain and distressed the edges of the DP with a Tim Holtz tool and then machine sewn them using Cream Top Stitch Thread.

I've said before, but I think wings need to sparkle so I've added glamour dust to them, and theres also Stickles on the flowers.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, hugs
