Hi Susan here....
At Lexi's Creations today we are starting a new challenge and the theme is 'Glitter and Pearls', well thats easy isn't it!!
Full details of the challenge and some fabulous inspiration from the design team can be found at the Lexi's Creation Challenge Blog. Call across and take a look and join in the fun with us all.
Now to my card...
Well this is a different card for me....I wanted to keep it really simple in the design and the colours....so I choose turquoise and white. My base card is from The Paper Mill Shop and the top section of the card I embossed using a cuttlebug embossing folder of swirls.
The turquoise satin ribbon and pearls are from our local market.
This fabulous sentiment is from Fairy Dust Crafts and has been designed by Lexi. It is called 'Side by Side'. Check out Lexi's store for some great offers at the moment. I cut my own shape for the topper and mat and layered it onto a turquoise card. All the edges have been distressed and glittered with stickles.
These beautiful butterflies are another one of Lexi's creations and they are available from Fairy Dust Studios, they are called 'DIY Butterfly'. Called that because they are very plain and can be finished however you want them to be. I coloured mine with chalks and then glittered around the edges of the wings and body.
My pins are from our local market, I have added extra pearls and a crystal divider.
