Pearls and Pastels

Hi there! How has your weekend been?

Today I am sharing the card I created for this week's challenge in The Shabby Tea Room. Here is our inspiration photo - isn't this a beautiful bracelet?

Here's what I came up with:

I am head over heels for this card that Melissa Phillips created with the bit of fabric behind the glittered chipboard shape. It has been stuck in my head since I saw it. My little card came together quickly when I found this bit of pink material embossed with the polka dots - I knew it needed to be a part of this card. I also used my favorite flowers from Rescue Remedies and a bit of yellow crinkle ribbon. Really love it.

That's it for me today - I'm off to bake some cookies and work on my Waltzingmouse release projects.  I will see you back here tomorrow for the first day of previews.  Enjoy your Sunday!
