Pearls and swirls

Morning peeps and hope it is a good one for you all. Well this card today is for another fab challenge at One Stitch at a time and you can get all artistic this time as the theme is pearls and swirls.

I got to choose from the fab designs by Stef this time round and chose this fab silhoette of a flower. For my swirls I decided to do some dry embossing and a little ribbon swirling, just fro fun. Pearls , think I went a bit mad as I added a drop of liquid pearl to the end of each swirl, I really didn't think there were that many when I started and I think now less would have defintely been more but once I'd started I had to coninue.

The sentiment is from LOTV which I powder embossed, and I think fits perfectly as it's a card for my sister in law for sister's day on the 7th August.

We have fab sponsors again Digis with attitude!

 and Flourishes with a Bling.

Look forward to seeing all your pearls and swirls anddo't forget the Pretty in Print competition we have on at the moment too, your chance to be part of a magazine who could resist?
