Pearls - Fab 'n' Funky Challenge

Hi everyone,

I'd like to extend a warm welcome to my new followers and thank you so much for the lovely comments everyone has taken the time to very much appreciated.  

Now, on to business,

Today at  Fab 'N' Funky  we have a new challenge for you,
hosted by my team mate, Jackie

The theme that Jackie has chosen for this week is
Use Pearls or Rhinestones

and is sponsored by
Crimson Cloud

My contribution is a card using a sweet image from Saturated Canary called Orchard Love. My favourite apple is Granny Smith...therefore she is picking green apples...just for me :)  I've rediscovered taupe lately, coloured her dress using E70 range. Quite by accident the dress took on a look that resembles a silk with slubbed linen look to me :)


Martha Stewart punch around the page set
I dyed white seam binding using Copics E70 for the bow.
Flower created using Heartfelt Creations Grandiflora Rose set - stamped with TH Pumice Stone.
String of pearls from Michaels - adhered using Api's Crafter's Pick Incredible Tacky Glue
Sentiment is part of a Pure Innocence set from MFT cut using SB Double Ended Tags

I will be entering the following challenges:
Saturated Canary Challenge #23  - Great outdoors
No Matter Which Challenge #1  - Anything Goes
Whoopsi Daisy Challenge - Die cuts and/or Punches
The Shabby Tea Room Week #126  - Soft Neutrals

Thanks so much for stopping by.

 Hugs, Pat K.

Gorgeous card Pat - love the colours and your beautiful punch around the page - sorry the comments are a bit sparse lately - I'm having huuuge blogger problems ( I can't actually see your card today but I saw it on the Fab'n'Funky blog!) most times I can't get blogs to load at all - fortunately its not stopping me from posting my own posts hugs Judith x
