Dress Up!

Hello friends,

It's that time again to get you creative juices flowing and to come over to Through the Craftroom Door for another fun and exciting challenge.  The theme for this challenge is a Mother's Day card and the added element is Pearls.  For some of us out there who may not have our mothers with us anymore, feel free to make it for a special friend.  Here is my card for a little inspiration.

This little cutie is by La La Land stamps and I thought she was perfect for this challenge.  She was coloured with copics and then cut out and matted on the oval.  The papers are Summer Blossoms by Close to my Heart.  The border punch is by EK success and the oval die is by Cheery Lynn.  I added stickles and a liquid pearl to the flower on her hat, liquid pearls in the centre of my flower embellishments and her necklace was given dimension with  liquid pearls as well!  She's all dressed up and ready to go!

Be sure to come and join me , I look forward to being inspired by your creative work! Thanks for stopping by!
