Simon Says ,,,,, Lace and Pearls

Thanks so much for all your entries into the Paper Piecing Challenge and thanks for all your lovely comments too :-)

This week we would like to see

PEARLS AND LACE on your creations :-)

If you don't have pearl gems you can use pearly buttons, pearl glimmer mist, liquid pearls, perfect pearls,,, pearlescent card ,,, lots of possibilities and the lace can be paper lace, lacey design paper, lacey border punch ,,, not necessarily fabric lace.

The DT and our lovely GD Jackie have all used Magnolia products this week ,,, well , as the theme is Lace and Pearls I think Tilda is in the limelight ,,, I doubt we will be seeing very much of poor Edwin this week !! :-) If you have any Magnolia images we would love to see them but you can use whatever you like on your creations.

As always our lovely Boss Heidi is sponsoring this challenge with a $25 trolley dash around her Simon Says Stamp Superstore ,,,, and she will pay the postage costs too :-)

pssst ,, have you seen the new Lili of the Vally stamps and Unmounted House Mouse stamps in store ,, as well as loads of new Whiff of Joy and Penny Black stamps too ,,,, lorry loads of new goodies arriving daily from hundreds of different crafty companies !!! :-)

For my card I followed the fab sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge I used my new Magnolia Wish Tilda stamp, did you notice she has her shoes on the wrong feet ?? :-) I coloured her with copics and added star dust stickles and copic glitter pen for sparkle. The papers are Magnolia too, I think from the Yummy Tummy collection ,, I do have the fairytale ones too ,, so why didn't I use them !!! cos I forgot I had them !! Anyway ,, I think these are lovely too :-) I used Lilac card and lilac coredinations too, all the papers were inked with Vintage Photo distress ink. The Pearls are Prima Say it In Pearls and have these gorgeous little roses with them :-)

The lace I have had for ages in my drawer , I did try to use a more fancy lace but I must admit lace is not my fave and I find it difficult to use ,,it always looks 'wrong' on my cards and gorgeous on everyone elses !! :-) The flower was a mix of Prima and others from my drawers too ,, sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist and star dust stickled :-0

Challenges :

Sketch Saturday ,,,,,, Sketch
Totally Tilda ,,,,, Lilac and Lace
Penny's Paper Crafty ,,, Happy Birthday
Fairy Fun Friday ,,,,, Pearls and Lace

Our lovely GD Jackie and the DT have made some AMAZING cards for your insopiration this week so head on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them :-)
