Swirls and pearls over at Polly Crafts Monday!

(Please scroll down for my Make It Monday DT post!)


It's a new challenge over at Pollycraft Monday Challenge and this week the ever lovely Anita has chosen the theme of....

Pearls and Swirls!

OMG, this was mega hard for me - I don't do a lot of swirls and just a little bit of pearls!  Here is what I came with..






I have to admit - I don't like this at all!  But I was pretty pleased with NOT using any DPs!  It really didn't come together but I still love Chester Bubbles!  I will make something else with him that I is more suited to my style!  BUT I adore that sentiment!  It is from the versatile Sonny Says sentiment set (you can find it here)

The rest of the DT makes are gorgeous though!  You can see them all here!  This week we are being sponedred by Crafty Emma's Store with a £10 voucher - I wish I could qualifiy cos she has a lot of gorgossity!!




I am entering my card into the following challenges:


Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock
Mediums: Copics
Accents: ribbon from stash, Papermania flat backed pearls
Tools: EK success border punch, Bazzill flourish template, Nestabilitie label die inside card

Great colour combo, love Chester - I like the pearls in the bottom half, not quite sure about the swirl, not my style either so I can sympathise with how hard it was for you LOL, the layour is lovely,
