Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 187 – Pearls and Gems

Josephine is hosting our challenge today, and the theme is Pearls and/or Gems. We would like to see lots and lots of pearly pearls or blingy gems, or both.

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it has some luscious pearls or sparkling gems.

Please remember our 15 total challenge rule!pearls and gems

My card was made using a tattered lace die to create the base stepper card, and as a bonus there was also dies to cut the layers to go on top.  I chose some art deco paper from my stash for the top layer, and used some rainbow mirri card for the the base in the “fan” shaped areas.

For my topper, I chose an image from a Hunkydory little book (my latest “go to” for a quick image!) and fussy cut round it so it could sit neatly in the centre.  It doesn’t show up particularly well, but I also used a quickie glue pen and some glitter on the strands on her dress to “bling it up a bit”.

The final touch was the sentiment, and the pearls.  I used varying sized flat back pearls to fit into the circles going up the fan elements, and three each of the same size to go on either side.
