Say it with....Pearls

Morning all. Another bright and early post for me. 5am South African time. It's Friday, so that means it's time for a new challenge over at Annabelle Stamps. The theme for the week is "Say it with...Pearls", and I must confess I LOVE pearls. I use them on my cards and scrapbook pages!!

I also set myself a bit of a personal challenge with this card, to try and use some of the flower stamps, it seems I use the more cutesy images more often than not!! And I must say I was super happy with the way my card turned out! Here it is:

I don't often use yellow, I think I may use it more now in the future!! The pattern paper I used is from Basic Grey and is from a 6 x 6 pad - Offbeat. I love these Basic Grey pads and have ordered another 2 with co-ordinating chipboard sticker packs for Mother's Day!! I used my EK Success border punch (I LOVE this punch and use it all the time!!)The flower stamps are from the "Floral Stems" set and the sentiment is from the "Flowers wit Love" set, both by Annabelle Stamps. The pearls are also from Annabelle, and I coloured the flowers in with my Copics.

So....we would love for you to take part in this challenge. I don't know a cardmaker who doesn't have some pearls in their stash!! Would really love for some RSA girls to take part!! ALSO, remeber you have until the evening of the 6th of May to take part in our Sketch Challenge. There is a lovely prize up for grabs!! Check it out in my side-bar.

Remember to come back later today!!! More things happening this afternoon at about 3pm South African time(9:00am MST). See you then.
