Pink, Pearls & Pretty @ MAWTT

Hello again guys I'm back with a brand new challenge today over at


and this time the lovely Mau is in charge and wants to see some

Pink Pretty Pearls in your Celebration

I really enjoyed making this card
using Marry Me from Saturated Canary
I have purposely left the sentiment off as I thought I might add the recipients names when I have someone to send it to! Coloured with Copics. The yummy papers are from Maja Designs they are from the 6x6 Vintage Summer collection and they are super swoony! All my flowers came from Wild Orchid Crafts as did the pearls and the heart border is a Magnolia Doo Hickey die.

Make sure you head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of this challenge and check out the fabulous inspiration from the DT this week.

We are sponsored by

who are offering the winner 3 packs of Die Cuts.

Thanks for stopping by,
did you know its going to be hot and sunny next week? woohoo!!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Wild Orchid Crafts - Shabby Chic
Papertake Weekly - All Things Girlie
Crafts & Me - R & B (Ribbon and A Bow)

Berry said...

Ok massive wow! i love this image and you have made such a stunning card!
Don't worry I'm with you on the 50 shades thing, it isn't well written, I don't find the main character attractive, he is controlling and abusive lol! I am still on the 3rd book and am struggling to finish it.
I made my card because of the image and because I know a tonne of people who would love to have it but I don't get the hype really at all!
I am still a big Twilight fan at heart although I would def see the film of 50 shades when it gets made (ooo naughty!) lol
Hugs Rebekah xx

Laurie this is DIVA DELICIOUS! but I love all your cards and your coloring! Really like this one as it has a shabby feel to it, must be the DP!

Wishing you a great weekend hun :)

Unknown said...

Hi Laurie, another fabulous card - perfect colour combo and your flower arrangement is wonderful.

Not to worry about not popping over my blog very often - I'm not exactly the most regular commenter on any blog myself!!!


PS - There is also some sort of blueish look to the clouds and I spy a yellow sort of blob in the sky, no idea what it means - I've sort of got used to the endless rain!!!!

Mary J said...

Wow! that is so very gorgeous Laurie! amazing flower arrangement and love the border!

Unknown said...
