Pearls and Swirls

It's time for another challenge at the Simply Stampin' challenge blog, the dt position is still open and so I am having another go with this week's challenge - Pearls and Swirls.

I started with a blank 5" x 5" card and using Pear Pizzazz stamped the border from Vintage Vogue. I then added a mat of Poppy Parade card stock and another of Very Vanilla. I stamped the Vintage Vogue border again and in the middle I stamped the swirly leaf flourish. The Vintage Vogue flowers were stamped in Poppy Parade ink, cut out and placed on the card using 3D foam pads. I placed a pearl in the middle of each one. I then stamped one of the butterflies from Butterfly Prints - the one with the swirly pattern inside and that was also stuck on with 3D foam pads.

It's been a busy day today - I have had my Mum, Dad and Grandad over for lunch and also my Mother - in - law so I'm looking forward to having a rest now and a glass of wine! Hope you all had a lovely weekend - see you soon - Jacqueline xx
