A Pretty Pearl Challenge



Hello Again to all of my lovely Friends!


Thank you for the wonderful comments!



Today I have a new DT Card for the Aussie My-Besties Challenge - Use Some Pearls!

 I feel it is a bit overdone, but I was having fun! LOL My Hubby kindly took the littlies out today for a few hours, so I zipped down to my craft room for a bit of me time!



This Month we were given a choice of 9 Digital Stamps to Use for the Challenge.

For this card I have picked this cute Bestie in a Train Image and used her for a Christmas Card! You can find her HERE



 I have coloured the Image with my Promarkers, then added Stickles and Mica Flakes.

I inked the edges of all of my Die Cuts etc with Purple Ink!



I needed to use Pearls for this Challenge so, I put lace and pearls on the top and bottom layers of the Twisted Easel Card. I have also added a lot of other pearls here and there! 



These Snow Flakes are from a new large Punch that I recently Purchased. The small Butterflies and Large Hearts on the Base are also Punches.

There is a cute little Ticket Here that can be used to catch the Train! He He I like the little blue birds sitting above! And I used flat back Pearl flowers as centres for my Snow Flakes.



A cute Bottle of Tiny Clear Beads, a seam binding bow and Stick Pin. 



This Blue Snow flake Paper is by KanBan. 



This selection of flowers is by Wild Orchid Crafts and my Stash!


I hope you like todays Card and will join in the challenge with your Card/Project with Pearls. It is an easy one this time so we hope for a lot of entries!

Hugs Julie xox

I am also entering the following: - Ribbon, Lace and Bling - Christmas with no Red or Green

Holy cow! That's fantastic!!
I adore Christmas cards in 'non-traditional' colors and this is a perfect example. It's another creation that I could just stare at over and over, discovering something new each time.
Love it!!
