Pearls and Swirls

At Sugar Creek Hollow this  week, the challenge is to channel your more frilly side and make vintage, shabby chic or primitive cards with Pearls and Swirls. The Rose Graphic that I used is from theHouseAcross theBay and was a freebie on Papercaft Star. I just printed the graphic to the size I needed and trimmed the picture. Added some distressing with ink.  For my background I embossed the base card and sponged it with Platinum Planet Ink. I cut 2 swirls with a die and arranged around the image and attached to the card. Added pearls of various sizes and added organza bow with a pearl. Finished with a sentiment on cut out rectangle.
Graphic: theHouseAcrossthe Bay compliments of Papercraft Star
Stamp: Flourishes from "Zinnias"
Ink: SU Always Artichoke, Distress Ink Tea Dye, Brilliance Platinum Planet
Papers: Green, Ivory,  and Lustrous Pearl Oyster from Stash
Dies: Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish, Nesties Rectangle
Cuttlebug EF Kassie Brocade
Pearls and Ribbon from Collection

My monitor seems to be burned out so I am working on DH's computer.
It is taking so long to post since  it is hard wo my own faves and files.   
I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
