Quixotic Challenges - Pretty Pearls


Good afternoon and welcome to another Quixotic Challenge! Where oh where do the weeks go? I can't believe this is the first time I have had a chance to share something this week!

This week Kim has chosen the theme of 'Pretty Pearls' for our projects - use pearls in your project/card in some way (flat back pearls, pearl pens and paints, pearl beads etc etc).

So nice and easy! It would be great to have you join us and you would be in with a chance of winning the monthly draw of a fabulous Quixotic Paperie voucher!

My card today features one of the gorgeous new images from Belle's and Whistles called a 'A Child's Prayer' I have stamped the image onto cream cardstock ( for a wee change!) and coloured with prisma pencils. I want a soft gentle look for this image and I have coloured the edges of the image with some chalk.

The papers are all from the new range from Echo Park called 'A Walk in the Park'. I have painted the edges with Distress Paint, added a punched flower, a punched border, some stain ribbon, a few Jenni Bowlin pins and some adhesive pearls!

I even managed to decorate the inside of this card! I have used the same papers etc and the sentiment is from Verve stamps and fitted this image perfectly!

If anyone fancies this card it will be for sale in my Folksy shop (for UK) customers or my Etsy shop for everywhere else!

Thanks for popping along!

Enjoy the rest of your week. I am busy getting lots of jobs done while the children are at their Granny and Grandpa's for a couple of days! Bliss!!!

Hopefully I will have the time to post a couple more cards this week before the mayhem returns :)

Back soon, Judy xx
