Cute Card Thursday #168 - Pins and Pearls

It is Thursday, and time for another Cute Card Thursday Challenge!

Our challenge this week is to use Pins and Pearls. Here is my card...


Stamps: Princess Tilda, Sentment from SU!
Paper: K&Co, Music, DCWV
Accessories: Wild Orchid Flowers, Lace, Stickles, Liquid Pearls, Pearls, Pin with beads, Rose Leaf and Branch Punch,



Princess Tilda is colored with  Distress Ink. You can see my attempt to cast my shadow, keeping the shadow darker closer to Tilda, and fading it out as it moves away from her.

I added a beaded pin and some pearls to my flower bouquet.


I used a banner for the sentiment.

I used the sketch from Wild Orchid for my card...


I will be entering this card in the following challenges...

Wild Orchid - Sketch
TOMIC -  Birthday Card
Magnolia Down Under Challenge - Peach, Purple and Cream
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Anything Goes
Just Magnolia - Anything Goes with option of lace
Make it Colourful - Cast Your Shadow

Just love your card... absolutely stunning. How do you get your paper edges so distressed... I have the tool, but after distressing doesn't look anything like this! Thanks, Sharon
