A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

The Hobby House Challenge #6 - Pearls

Good Morning Everyone! Hope you're all healthy, happy & raring to go for our November challenge at the Hobby House!

This month we'd like to see PEARLS on your wonderful creations!  How awesome is this challenge!  The DT have had a ball with this one as I think we're all a bit partial to pearls - hey, who wouldn't be? 

There is a slight change to the RULES in that you must now use at least one item from the Hobby House and this needs to be mentioned in your post!

As always, our winner will receive a HUGE

(postage paid by winner)

My card today features a beautiful image from a Wee Stamps Topper Set called 'Love Me Do'.  I cut the topper into an arch and edged with Pearl String.  The Hobby House stock the most beautiful card and I used a mixture of Spring Hearts and Spring Damask to mat my topper onto! This card is 250gsm and is so beautiful to work with.
The die cut branches are randomly cut from a Marianne Designs die, which I then added little pearl adhesive hearts, which are available in 6mm and 8mm sizes.  I made my little floral arch using the gorgeous Mulberry Roses, which come in a variety of colours and sizes.
 For the bottom of my card I adhered the beautiful lace and added some gorgeous Self Adhesive Pearl Ornate Flourishes, with a few of the 5mm self adhesive pearls popped onto the bottom corners ... and there you have it! My pearlicious card has been well & truly pearlised LOL.   

I really hope you can join us in this month's challenge and cannot wait to see what you create!
