Quixotic Paperie Challenge #31 ~ Pretty Pearls

This is my second post today so please scroll down for my Club Anya & friends card! Thanks :)

Now, for today's weekly challenge over at quixotic paperie blog, Kim Dellow has  picked Pretty Pearls ~ use pearls in your project/card in some way (flat back pearls, pearl pens and paints, pearl beads etc etc).

Tee Hee, Ok, so... I may have had a little fun with lots of the pearls, I have used the bazzill template and adhered flat back pearls into the swirl pattern, I could have used one colour but the papers are so multi coloured I just went with it. So the centre of the grungepaper flower is a pearl brad and I couldn't resist a squeeze or two of the Viva Decor pearl pen, Love you can have any size of pearl you want!!!
A little tip for achieving the dome on the pearl paint... after applying a generous blob, flick the underneath of your card and the peak will disappear into a smooth dome!!!
I have followed Mercy's fabulous sketch #81 but didn't cut the sentiment card into an oval as I would have lost some of the word.

Supplies: Patterned Paper: fancy pants: roadshow collection kit; Tim Holtz: Grungepaper;
Stamps: Stempelglede - Grunge Collection;
Ink: Memento: black; Ranger ~ distress inks; various;
Dies: Spellbinders flying beauties;
Other: Prima: lace; Viva Decor: pearl liner; pearl brad; 3mm flat back pearls; Bazzill jewel template; glossy accents; 3D foam;

Thanks for visiting today, HuGs Kim :)
