Lots of Pearls!

Hi Everyone

Its time for a new challenge over at Craft Rocket Challenges   The Theme for this fortnight is Pearls/Gems.  We would like to see some of these on your creations!


For my DT Card I would like to share with you the Birthday Card that I made for a friends 40th!  It's not the card I had originally planned for her in my head but when I made this one up I thought that she would really like it.  The Image is from AuroraWings and is called Woman in Strands of Pearls.  I coloured her using ProMarkers and added lots of Pearl Gems ranging from 1mm to 4mm in size. (around 300) It was a task and a half but I am so pleased with the result.

My Base/Frame Layer is a Bazzill Basics Brown shade and the Patterned Paper is from Papermania's Bellisima Paper Pack.  I added a Satin Purple Ribbon and laid a strip of White lace over the top of it. I then put a row of string pearl drops along the edge of the lace.  The Happy 40th Sentiment is from Stampingallday and I stamped this using a Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad.  I added Paper Flowers to decorate and stripped the petals from a Baby's Breath just to leave the Pearl Spray bit!  To finish I popped on a Satin Bow and a few more Pearls (Purple ones this time)




Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.  Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think.  Hope to see you again soon.
