Whiff of Joy challenge DT - Pearls and Swirls

Woohoo it's Wednesday and time for another challenge at Whiff of Joy Challenge!!! Thank you all so much for your gorgeous cards using my sketch - I was thrilled to see so many take part, I'm so glad you liked the sketch! This week we have a theme of "pearls and swirls". I loved this one so much, I do love swirls, they're so pleasing to the eye don't you think?? I have used the stunning Dancing Willow image from the City Girl collection, I just love this fun stamp! The stunning papers are BoBunny, I must get some more as they are just delish!!

I have coloured Willow with distress inks which is a change for me, I usually colour WOJ images with copics! You can only just see that I have added stickles to her bag, shoes, belt and jewellery and the ground around her feet.

Here's my pearls and swirls. These gorgeous pearl brads are from Hobby House, just love the colour of these and they are perfect with the paper. The flowers are by Prima. The swirls have been punched from pearlescent cardstock using EK Success swirl flourish punch.

I have printed the sentiment on the computer - a first for me and I have to say I'm hooked already - how great to be able to write whatever you want in whatever colour you want!!! (I'm so behind the times LOL).

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! I hope you can find time to join us this week and pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the DT's stunning creations!! x
