Pearls, swirls and pastel pink.

Hello all - hope your Monday has gone or is going well (depending on where you are and what time you're reading this!!).  Today I am posting a card for theTeddy Bo challenge which is pearls and swirls.
I wanted to make my own background so I inked the cardstock with my (new!) Tim Holtz visual artistry stamps and some pink ink and then cut all the embellishments with my Silhouette and gently inked them with the same shade.
I added a few pearls to the butterflies and flower centres and voila.........  I'm happy with this one :)
Here's a close up to show the floral swirls -

I would also like to enter this into the following -

That's about it for now - managed to get a lot of colouring done recently so now I've got to buckle down and finish some other projects!  Thanks for stopping by :)

Oh wow! Teddy Bea looks so different coloured like that, I so love the effect of it.
I love your background too it looks fantastic, and all the embellishments. Those butterflies are so cute as is the swirls and leafs :0)
You have inspired me to get my Silhouette out again and have a play!
Thanks for sharing it with us at Teddy Bo's challenge.

Hi Sweetie, thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment about "the dark side"... you almost made me spit my coffee out laughing...your dark side is currently being squashed by cuteness! I hope you do join us on the dark really is actually a lot of fun. No one is more surprised than me, lol!
Hugs and have a fab evening,

Wonderful job of creating your own background. I rarely do that and don't know why. So much room for customization. Lovely soft feel. :-)

This card is awesome. I love how you have layed it out and the soft colors make the flowers beautiful. The 3D look is stunning I really think that is what makes this card so elegant and by adding your pearls that is the perfect touch.
