Swirls and Pearls

Hello, card making Friends!  It is Shirley posting today!  I hope you all are having a great week. We have had a few really nice days and that sure helps with the winter blahs.

I am showing my card for the Fancy Pearls challenge today. I hope I have added enough pearls. I had planned on adding some lace to it, but that is not where the card went once I got started. I suppose you all know how that goes.

I started my card by cutting a pink card base. I layered it was brown card stock. I used white card stock and the Couture Creations Tied Together die to cut my overlay. I used a piece of word paper, that had a hint of pink to it, to put behind the white overlay.

I used pink card stock and the Spellbinders Floral Ovals die to cut my decorative oval. Next I put a plain white oval that I embossed with the Crafts Too Dots embossing folder to layer over the fancy floral oval.

To decorate my floral oval I chose the Impression Obsession Open Scroll Flower to cut with brown card stock. I backed the flower with pink card stock to make the flower pop. I used Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive with the attachable Metal Tip to adhere it to my oval. I really love this adhesive to glue down small things.

I added some White shimmer ribbon roses to the front of the oval. I used Snowflake Pearls to decorate the front of my card. I added some brown swirls and leaves, using a die from my collection, to decorate my card as the finishing touch.

Thanks, so much, for tuning in today.  I hope you will join us for our challenge, I would love to see your fancy pearls on your card. See you again soon!

You always know what to do when you are working with pink and black - this card is stunning with the way all the die cuts look in combination, with the pearls and those soft flowers! One amazing card!
