Pearls and Swirls

Good morning!  Today we have a new challenge from the Creative Card Crew...pearls and swirls.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Simon Says Stamp!

I used a lovely sentiment from Clear Dollar Stamps; after changing the color of the text to a dark brown, I printed it on the backside of the DP, then distressed the CS and DP panels.  For my swirls I went with a die from Cheery Lynn, added a handmade felt flower and finished with a scattering of pearls.  I like how this one turned out.

Sentiment: Clear Dollar Stamps Digital Image
Ink: Printer
Paper: PTI Dark Chocolate, SU! Sage Shadow, My Mind's Eye DP
Embellies: Kaiser Half Pearls
Extras: Cheery Lynn Designs "Flourish" Die, MFT Royal Rose Die-namics Die/PTI Canyon Clay Felt

If you'd like to play along, just link your creation to the Creative Card Crew blog and you just might be the lucky winner of a prize from Simon Says Stamp!

I am also entering my card in the following challenges:

Crafty Creations Challenges: Embellish It (my 3 are felt flower, swirl diecut, and pearls)
Guylou's Inimitability: Swirls and Pearls
Little Red Wagon: Sentimental You (sentiment as main focus)
