Use Pearls Challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks

Good Morning!  Can you believe we are almost halfway through February!  
This week I am hosting my first challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks and I want to see what you can do with pearls .  I had planned on doing this great Valentine's Day Card to show today, but when I found this beautiful paper at Hobby Lobby the other day I knew it would be perfect for pearls. But then after I finished it I thought - What shows more love the pearls, flowers and angels?  This is going to be a great non-traditional Valentine for my hubby's Grandmother.  I used an image from The Paper Shelter that is simply called Angel and you can find her here.  I colored her with Prisma Color Pencils and embossed her wings and underskirt with Zing white opaque finish embossing powder.  I also added some embossing around the die cut which is one of Spellbinders great dies.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the pearls and paper are from The Paper Studio. The ribbon is from my stash.

Come join us this week at 4 Crafty Chicks and show us what you create using Pearls.  I can't wait to see! And don't forget to stop by the rest of the Chicks blogs and leave them some love!  They have some amazing creations to share with you!

I am entering into the following challenges:
 Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!

Tina, this card caught my eye. I adore the sweet image, and your coloring with your pencils is awesome. The layout and embellishments of this card are wonderful with the image and that is absolutely perfect. I love the look of this card with the pretty diecut behind the image. The flowers, ribbon and pearls...all lend to a card that is so romantic in my opinion. I love it and I know your husband's grandmother is going to be thrilled with it. Thanks for entering our challenge at The Paper Shelter with one of our images!!! Hugs, Gail
