Good afternoon everyone. I hope you are fine wherever you are. It's a public holiday today here in Malta, so I am very happy indeed :)
We were going to go out for the day, to a picnic and possibly for our first swim for this year, but seeing it was a bit windy today we decided not to swim and instead go out later in the day. Well I was really looking forward for my first swim, but thought better not to, even though the temperate is 24C but don't want to risk getting a cold. Will wait a few more days....
Anyway, it's week two of the PEARLS AND SWIRLS challenge at
and so time for team 2 to post their cards.
We have two sponsors this week, and lucky us we got to use an image from one of our sponsors Digital Delights
The image that I am using is this really cute Flower Power Dolled Up Daisy
I colored the image with my promarkers and used lovely DP from a My Mind's Eye paperpack which was free in a Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine long time ago. I then added some lovely bubble shiny flowers and butterfly stickers and finished off my card with a stamped sentiment on a die cut and of course with pearls and swirls for the challenge.
A close up of the card. ... I also added glitter and glossy accents on the flower on her hat.
Really loved how it turned out. I decided to give my card to a colleague who is also so cute and loves bright colours and who tomorrow happens to be her last day at work with us as she will be moving to another department next week. I'm sure she will love it.
Our second sponsor for this challenge is Live & Love Crafts
so two great reasons to join us and play along with us.
