Quixotic Challenges DT Card-Pretty Pearls

Afternoon all! Hope everyone's having a great week! This week over at Quixotic Challenges the challenge is set by Kim and she wants us to add pearls to our project. Nice easy one:) Speaking of pearls, have you seen the new Viva Decor pens in stock at Quixotic Paperie? Utterly fab!

Last week I ordered 'Fairy Play' from the new Belles and Whistles Elisabeth Bell Collection so I just had to get her inked up! I used the gorgeous Girl's Paperie papers, some kraft cardstock available from Emma in her Folksy Shop along with 6 x 6 Kraft envelopes-her kraft stuff is fab quality! I've stitched all the edges as usual:) I had a go at making one of those adorable wrapped roses-I love them-and I popped it in the centre of the lollipop flower and painted Shimmerz in pixie dust around the edges.

I actually have joined in some challenges this time! I used the fab sketch over at Mojo Monday-it's been just forever since I played there! I'm also entering this at: Craftalicious (cute), Creative Card Crew (die cuts).

This card will be popping along to My Etsy Shop shortly-I've got 10% off all my cards over there right now as part of Etsy's Christmas in July sale. I've also added more new designs including some gorgeous wooden hanging ornaments which I've altered-this is the heart and home one:

For those of you that haven't really been to Etsy or Folksy before before you start your Christmas Shopping for this year do go over and have a look-there's such amazing pieces of work-I always found the prices excellent, and it's lovely to support someone's small business rather than giving more cash to big corporate companies;)

Hope you find some time to join in with us at Quixotic Challenges this week! Thanks so much for stopping by and any comments you leave:)
