Pretty pearls

Today over at colour create we were treated to another fantastic colour combination. This week it is the turn of Mina who chose the yummy combo of yellow, grey, black & white with the added, optional, extra of flowers. Here is her inspiration picture to fire you up......

This month we have a lovely prize very kindly donated by Korthobby check out all the details on the colour create challenge blog.

I was excited when I saw Mina's choice as I had just received the perfect paper pad for my birthday and now had the excuse to have a play with it !

So I used papers from my new Authentique Blissful paper pad and that beautiful laser cut butterfly panel is actually a cupcake wrapper that I slipped into my bag after eating the delicious treat inside (Man O man do I love cake ?!) Well how could I throw away something so pretty - I just knew I would find the perfect use for it !!

The wrapper was inked up with yellow and silver brilliance ink (it has a lovely sheen IRL) and tipped gently with black. I also used the silver brilliance to edge the DP's, the flower and to shadow stamp my sentiment too.

The lovely pearls are clipped from a ZVA pearl oval frame - these came up the perfect shape and size :)

I hope you will play along with us this fortnight - hop on over to the colour create challenge blog and check out all the stunning DT projects the girls have really rocked these colours.

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

LOL A cupcake wrapper huh? :-) I never would have guessed. I'm sure glad you didn't throw it away. That would have been a waste cause it looks amazing on your card. Have a wonderful weekend!
