Morning Everyone,

Back again for the start of a new challenge over at As You Like It where we are asking whether you prefer to use pearls or gems on your projects.

I definitely prefer pearls, especially with this type of card.  They come in a multitude of colours and always look so elegant.  

For my card I've used two wreath dies, both from Memory Box and added them to an odd 6" x 6" sheet of paper found in my drawer.  I haven't used any flowers for a long time so decided to go with this type of card, distressed the edges with my Tim Holtz tool and hand stitched all around.  I've put a plain piece of paper in the centre and heat embossed the sentiment.  

Pale green pearls, twine and two little dragonflies have been added too.

The sponsor for the challenge is:
