Allsorts week 464 - Use Pearls

Saturday Morning once again and another challenge over at Allsorts and it is our lovely Helene who is hosting this week, she would like to see "pearls" on your creations.

Our sponsor this week is Marianne Design with this lovely prize.

The stamp is Honeydoo - Thanks a Bunch
The papers, well actually it is more card than paper - Kanban
Two papers used one for the background and another to paper piece the image.
Die - Memory Box - Valencia border
Sentiment Craftwork Cards.

Popping down to our Community Centre this afternoon where Dies to Die for are holding a pop-up shop while the lovely Faye is doing colouring classes.
No doubt will come home with a purse lighter than when I went down.
Have a great week everyone and thanks for popping by and any comments that you are kind enough to leave.

I am also entering this card into a new challenge - Back to basics and beyond

Hi Kath,
what a very wonderful card and so wonderfully created.
Every single bit of it is so pretty.
That flower stamp is gorgeous, and of course your colouring is brilliant.
Love the paper and the colour of your matt layer they all go so well together.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Darnell said...

Holy pp, Kath, what a stunner! I can't believe how perfect that paper is for your pink hydrangea! The background pp works a treat, too! This is scrumylicious!! Hugs, Darnell

MaryH said...

Oh this is so pretty! Until I read the post, I thought you'd colored those lovely blooms on the flowers. Brilliant idea to use a complimentary dp to stamp on (I never think of this!) The background and the blossoms just look so beautiful as you've done this card, and I love that delicate scrolling along the side border too. I'll use Darnell's scrumylicious...a good word to describe your wonderful card. TFS & have a good week..

Christine L said...

Oooh Kath... this is gorgeous!! I'm loving the stamp you've used, and then your paper piecing is spot on, and perfectly matches the other paper you used!! The pearls in the centre of the flowers gives it the magic finishing touch!

Was lovely to see you on Saturday - like you, I came home with far less money than I went with!

See you again..... going to Otley in Sept??
