Pink Swirly Pearls

Hello my friends!
I'm busy busy making sure I have everything made and ready
for Saturdays Fall Craft Show at our local high school
but took a break from all that craziness and wanted to play
along in a few challenges.

So, I popped over to Paper Playful and grabbed what caught my attention.
First let me show you my card and then I'll tell you
whose challenges I'll be playing in.

The first challenge that caught my eye was the 4 Crafty Chicks 'Swirly Pearls' Challenge.
I have had a few sheets of these beautiful swirly pearls in
my stash for quite awhile ... time to blow the dust off and use them.

Next I spotted the Craft Rocket Challenge 'Pretty Pinks' ... hence my choice
of color for today's creation.  Besides, I can ALWAYS use more
ladies birthday cards in my stash for the craft shows.

The next challenge that caught my attentions was Seize the Birthday Challenge
I have used the Memory Box  'Bubbles' stencil
to create the background panel behind my pink Cheery Lynn Designs 
'Cathedral Lace Frame' panel.  My Happy Birthday sentiment die is 
Creative Expression, Sue Wilson.

Now if I could find a challenge using faux stitching I'd be happy, happy!  LOL

Here's a few other challenges I found that I'd like to share in:
Scrapy Land Challenge #53 - Anything Goes
In the Pink Challenge #106 - Lots of Layers

Well that's it for me today.
I'd best go over my list one more time
and get my car packed.  Need to be at the
high school at 6:30 a.m.  LOL ... going to be a long day!

Thanks for stopping by and as always . . .

WOW! Your title caught my eye and now your card has captured my heart....and taken my breath away! Gorgeous layering of dies, so many pretty ones to look at. And of course I adore your Pink Swirly Pearls! LOVE!

Wow! That gorgeous die cut looks fabulous over the "bubbles", and then with the pearls -- awesome! I still have bunches of those swirly pearls, too, and keep thinking I need to use them. Pearls and swirly rhinestones. I always overstock, sheesh! Now I'm probably overstocked with sequins and hardly use those, but just had to have all those colors. I'm so bad. Love your gorgeous card today, Darlene. Good luck with the craft show!
