Ribbons and pearls ......

This weeks challenge at Papertake Weekly is 'ribbons and pearls'...... my favourite embellishments after sparkle!!   I used a Hanglar stamp and coloured him with copics, adding Stardust Stickles to make him sparkle! The blue paper is from the LOTV Frosty Christmas pad
I used 9mm willem blue velvet ribbon, 4mm white pearl bead string and 38mm white guipure lace.  I experimented with the gorgeous new beads by adding a strip of 6mm double sided sticky tape to my card above the velvet ribbon, removing the red backing and sprinkling on the blue and aqua mix beads - they look lovely and I'll be using this technique again!
As you can see, this card was to welcome new baby Harry  -  I strung the alphabet beads on some of the silver metallic twine and fixed it to the hanglar hands with half a tiny glue dot.  The other embellishments used were a silver butterfly (from a pack of 5) and some 5mm self adhesive pearls.
Please go and check out the outstanding work by the PTW design team ladies - I'm sure you will be inspired to get crafting - you have a full week to get your card in!
Velvet ribbon, lace, pearls, silver metallic twine,
See you soon, Mary G x

Had a look back and all your creations are gorgeous! Love the Christmas pink one especially as I am usually a traditional colour girl xxx
