Papertake Weekly Challenge - Ribbons and Pearls

Afternoon everyone, been a busy morning but still have so much to do, why can you empty the washing basket and then turn around and its full again!?!? Never Mind!!

So this week over at Papertake Weekly the theme is Ribbons and Pearls! Our sponsor is The Paper shelter , I was over on their site this morning, going back later on, their images are adorable, i'm head over heals for 'Sophie in the country'. If you have a moment, why not take a look??

When I have made cards in the past I have always done one or the other on a card (Ribbon or Pearls), so it was a bit out (hands stretched wide apart) of my comfort zone to put both! But after a long time sat thinking (while scratching head for inspiration) I came up with this;

You can just see where i have stamped flourishes in versamark for the background, I decided to go over just one to add more effect, The Image was a free one from CDAC before christmas, I cut the circles with my nesties, the blue one in on miri card, The pearls were put on by hand (when went to my little pearl and sparkle box had no adhesive pearls so had to stick each pearl by hand, and im not one for the time it took, I get too fluttery!) The ribbon I stuck on with double sided tape (and got it strait for a change!) and placed the pearls on the bottom for added detail.

I have entered this card to;

Critter Challenge Blog - Blue, Silver and Pearls
Paper Playtime - Use the word Love
The secret crafter - With love
Die Cut Dreams - Use a Digi and Rubber Stamp (the back is stamped with a flourish stamp and versamark)

Thanks for popping by, If you have time let me know what you think!

thanks for your comment on my cats :-)
Your cat looks so cute with her black nose!
Unfortunately the only way to keep the coat from matting is to comb her coat on a daily base! Don't use a brush but a good quality comb to take out the dead hairs. If you keep having troubles with her coat then maybe you can ask for help at a Persian Cattery in your neighbourhood or maybe your vet can show you the best way to comb her coat. Good luck and give her a cuddle from me :-)
greetings Sliekje and cats
