Creative cottage challenge # 16 - Pearls and swirls


Hello to the sunshine - it's about time ! and hello to you, thanks for dropping in x
This week over at the Creative cottage challenge blog it's my turn to set the challenge and since we've all been making fathers day cards I thought I'd opt for something pretty and girly.
So this week we want to see your cards with "pearls and swirls".

For my card I have used the Birthday wishes kit available here.
I printed the papers onto pearlescent paper which gives a beautiful effect which you can't really see in the picture.

I've used another pink cat studio digi stamp - there are so many beautiful stamps to chose from over there.
I've printed it then used the beyond the border technique over at Stamp TV to die cut it - click on the link to have a look it's fab.
I have used watercolour pencils to colour my image and liquid pearls to accent then added it to another larger diecut (nestabilities). The swirls are sizzix and that cute little butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch which I added some stickles to.
The flower is from my trusty craft cupboard.

I hope you like it - please come and play along at the creative cottage challenge blog - I love to see all your creations.

((hugs)) Suzie xx

Lovely hun, love the big flowers and the butterfly!
Our sun seems to have run away for now, so I'm busy making zip files and doing other digi-stuff. Time for a lunch break soon. . .
Hugs,
