Divas by Design Challenge - Pearls

Good morning my crafty friends....

Wow I can't believe it - I've reached 100 followers!!

A big hello to all my new followers and a big Thank You to everyone who has chosen to follow my blog. I really do appreciate your support and wonderful comments.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend and we're already half way to the next one!

I had a lovely day on Saturday at The Hobby House's 10th Birthday celebrations. It was lovely to see Jill  and meet my fellow teamies. Oh and perhaps a little crafty shopping too!

Well I'm here this morning as we've got a new challenge for you over at Divas by Design and this weeks challenge is a nice and easy one...


and we're sponsored this week by Crafty Charlie.

My card today has another Tiddly Inks image, I'm just loving their cute little images at the moment.

This little Tiddly Ink is called Tenderhearted. Isn't she cute!

Well Pearls is the remit for this weeks challenge and I've used lots of pearls and a string of them, all from The Hobby House. They have a wonderful selection of singles in lots of different colours and strings of them too.

Coloured as usual with my copics

Skin : E0000, E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Bird :  YR20, YR21, Y38, YR04
Pinks : R81, R83, R89, R59
Flowers & Wings : B00, B21, B23
Hair : E21, E25, E29, E45
Branch : E11, E13, E15, E18

The papers are from the gorgeous Maja Road Vintage Spring Basics pad and they've all been distressed with a TH tool and Walnut stain.

The following dies were used to create the layout

DooHickey - Clouds
EK Success punch - Rock Fern
Marianne Creatables LR0152. Cut in half for the 'doilies' at each side.

The flowers are from WOC and the pearls and lace from The Hobby House.

I've used this months CLP challenge for my layout
