LCI Challenge - Pearls



The challenge this week at Ladybug Crafts Ink is PEARLS chosen by the lovely Gaelle. I just love using pearls on any of my cards but for this occasion I decided to go with a Handbag! The lady who asked for this wanted to be able to put a gift cheque inside but didn't want just a card so this is what I made for her.
Handbag - clipart Fairy
Embellishments - pearls, ribbons, handmade flower from Tim Holtz Die, rub ons
Medium - promarkers
I printed the template onto glossy card, printed some parts twice so I could 3d it. Cut a layered flower using TH die in the same papers and added a pearl. Ruby is coloured with promarkers and lots of sparkle.
I hope you all get time to join in the challenge this week.
I would like to enter this into
Crafty Creations challenge - a gift card holder
Fussy and Fancy friday - anything but a card
Oh Alice - handmade flowers
Top Tip Tuesday - use ribbon
