Good Morning!! You are looking at another cute image from the Elisabeth Bell for SCACD-Edition #3. This is Heartstrings.

We were challenged this week to use pink, sage/moss green, and cream/white. I had alot of fun making this card. I got really really messy with the distressing. The image is colored with Copics and highlighted with Spica pens. I sponged the background and got really messy again. I found the large fabric rose, lace doily and bow in my stash. The pin has a couple of pearls and a small pink crystal. The smaller roses are Prima. I punched the leaves with my MS punch and I used my new MS eyelet lace punch for the border on the background. This is not my usual style, but I think it came out okay. You can't really see the glitter in the DP, but it is really pretty. If you click on the picture I think you will be able to see it. The DP is K & Company.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Pollycraft Monday Challenge - Distressing
Practical Scrappers - Use chalks or Inks
The Pink Elephant - Add green to your color combo
Spoon Full of Sugar - Use beads (beads on pin)
Simon Says - Vintage with Flowers
Cute Card Thursday - Ribbon (bow)
Stamp Something - Use Designer Paper, Button, Ribbon (button on bow)
Secret Crafter Challenge - Stitching
Creative Inspirations - Lace, pins, pearls (Lace doily, pin with pearls and crystal, pearls on the inside)

I used my new MS punch for the inside as well and added some flatback pearls. The background of this card is Ivory not white.

Be sure and check out the other DT projects here. They are super super fabulous!!
