Diamonds and Pearls

Afternoon all - I'm hoping you are all well and happy and enjoying your Tuesday - I've been to my usual toddlers session with my younger daughter this morning - and now I'm at my mums - my little Penny is currently enjoying 'beauty and the beast' so I've got a few minutes to talk to you all in blogland. I had some exciting news last night - hopefully by my next post I'll be able to share it with you!  What I have got to share with you is a card I made in my crafty attic last night. I didn't think I was going to be able to enter the diamonds and pearls for Lili's little fairies since I was out of pearls - and then I came across these monsters in my stash - aren't they just fab? I love them!!!

Anyway - the card - I've used a card blank from Dawn Bibby Designs and an all over the page punch from Martha Stewart. I've used spellbinders dies to cut the central portions and coloured the image with promarkers but added some glitter on the bears dress and shoes. The flowers came from my latest blooms pack from Duck Pond Crafts - they're just delicious. The brown ones are Prima flowers though I think. The bow was tied with ribbon from my stash.

I hope you like it - I love this one!

I'd like to enter my card for the following challenges:

Lili's little fairies - diamonds and pearls
stampin for the weekend - sparkle and shine
Fussy and fancy - punches and dies
choc, coffee and cards - pearls punches and flowers
pile it on: Sparkle and shine

Hoping to upload another post later! Speak to you then! Hugs Rachel xx
