♥ Pearls and Swirls ♥

I recently found this fun challenge blog called Stamptacular Sunday Challenge. This week's challenge is called Pearls and Swirls! Your card/project must be filled with, yup, you guessed it, pearls and swirls! Some of my favorite things! The following cards were made for this fun challenge!

This first card uses some Webster's Pages papers, Prima pearl swirls with flowers, MS punched butterflies, hemp cord and a Dear Lizzy stamped sentiment.
This next one is a gift card holder made with some So Sophie Ledger paper by My Mind's Eye, Prima chipboard, MME Quite Contrary Tickets, stamps by Pink Persimmon and We R Memory Keepers, pearls, seam binding and glitter.
And finally, this card was made with some We R Memory Keepers Old Glory papers, a star pick, a stamp by DMD, gingham ribbon and some pearls. I also used this week's sketch from the 2 Sketches 4 You blog.
Here is the 2S4Y sketch.
I hope you all {here in the US or abroad} have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day weekend!! Have fun!!

Hugs...
