Diamonds and Pearls


I had a busy weekend making cards, and was inspired by the Daring Card Makers 'Tag You're It' challenge and Lils Little Fairies challenge to add  'diamonds and pearls' which was right up my street!! I used a die-cut image which I cut with a round nestie, popped it onto this very pretty nestie and slathered the dress and wings with Stardust Stickles.

  The sentiment 'make a wish' is a Papertrey Ink stamp - perfect for this image I think, and the tag was cut from white card with a punch we've had for many years.  I added heliotrope satin ribbon to the tag and the card



The lace I used is 20mm scallop venise lace and I used the new variagated lilac self adhesive pearls which are new in to the Ribbon Girl online store.

I used a Zva clear crystal flourish (diamonds), more self adhesive variagated lilac pearls and some lilac blossoms from stash.  The green leaves were cut with my Martha Stewart punch.

Zva flourish, lace, satin ribbon, Stickles and self adhesive pearls are all from here
I will enter this card into the DCM challenge in conjunction with Tea House Bridge and the Lils Little Fairies Challenge
See you soon, Mary G x
