Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #240

Hello dear friends and welcome to my blog.  Hope your day is going well for you.

The new Challenge is up and running at Crafty Cardmakers.   Dr. Monika is our wonderful host and the Theme is Pearls and/or Gems.
As always, you may create whatever you wish as long as it follows the Theme.

Here is the project I created for this Challenge.
The base paper is from the Misty Mountains Collection by Kaisercraft and, once again, I have stamped and heat embossed the background.  The greeting is also from the same paper Collection.
The small strip of paper running through the center of the card is from Maja and on top of that, I added a lovely diecut by Altenew.

The flower is by Little Birdie ..
.. and I finished off the card with lots of tiny pearls and gems.
I do hope you will pop on over to the CCM blog to see what the rest of the Team have created to inspire you.

  8. Wow, what a beautiful card, I love the swirls and the beautiful flower!

  9. Sigh... that colour is known as "Ally blue" in my family - it's my favourite shade, somewhere between blue and lavender, so this card has made me very happy. I love the strip of exquisite butterflies and the swirl of movement from the diecut... beautifully done.
