Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge - Pins and Pearls!


Hello friends! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog for the Sugar Nellie hop.  I hope you guys got some great ideas.

Today is Labor Day here in the USA and so my hubby is off work and cooking a brisket.  We went on the boat yesterday and then Saturday had our shrimp fest at my SIL's.  Great time with family and the food was awesome!  So, I have had a great weekend and I hope you have too!

Monday means WILD ORCHID CRAFTS CHALLENGE!!! This week the theme is PINS and PEARLS. Another fun one. 

For this card I used the sketch at Stamp with Fun, but I am too late to enter; also, Lovely Hanglar Only Challenge blog is looking for layers so I will be entering there, and then since I used this "cute" little Hanglar from my very sweet friend, I am entering the Stamp Something Challenge! I also just found out that Die Cut Dreams is having the theme Pins and Pearls also.

I used my distressed inks and colored her on watercolor paper.  The papers are Prima Marketing and K&Co.  I'm bummed that I covered up my Prima paper.  I am just going to stop worrying about matching the papers, since I always cover them up. ha ha!

Here is a list of my Wild Orchid Crafts items:

I recently had a sweet lady email me asking about those heart pearls and I told her that I had won them in a challenge, then a few days later I got my new Wild Orchids DT kit and guess what was in it???? Yes, those adorable little heart pearls.  Now, I couldn't find them on the website yet, but they will be there eventually just keep looking.

Whew! This was a long post! ha ha!  I hope you can join us this time around since we love seeing your cards!  Thank you again so much for taking the time to say "hello" and to come see what I have made!

Hugs to you all!
