Cute Card Thursday Challenge #168 - Pins & Pearls

What a nice challenge theme we have over on Cute Card Thursday this week - Pins & Pearls.  So dig out your pretty pins and pearls to decorate your projects and add a link on the CCT blog for a chance to win this week's prize, sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.

The theme immediately made me think of a blues and creams colour scheme and I selected this sweet hAnglar & stAnglar image.

The background paper was a magazine freebie and exactly the colour I wanted for my design.  The blue horizontal strip is from a Papermania collection and I used more of it to cut out flowers, fronds and leaves using Marianne's dies and a Magnolia Doo Hickey flower die set.

I coloured the image with Copics before cutting out and attaching to the cream pearl layer cut using a Spellbinders die.  I used more of the cream pearl card to cut the leafy frond using a Marianne's die and one of the layers in the Doo Hickey flower.  The tiny sentiment and seam binding ribbon are by SU! and the lovely pearl adorned pin was created by a dear crafting pal of mine Karen.  Pearls are from my stash, as is the tiny cream rose in the centre of the flower.

I'm looking forward to seeing your pearly pin creations this week, leave a direct link to your project on the CCT blog for a chance to win this week's prize.
