Wedding Anniversary Pearls and Swirls Challenge

Join us this week at Delightful Challenges 
for Swirls and Pearls challenge!

Well, I tried to make this the pearliest, swirlest card I could possibly make.  My wedding anniversary was earlier in September so I thought I would work with that theme and Digital Delights has a great looking wedding couple for my card.

There is a little bit of everything on this card.  I was saving the Prima pearl and gem flourish for just the right card and this is it.  I cut out different sections of the whole to place around my card.  I also embossed one of my pink papers with a CuttleBug embossing folder and then gently applied a little Copic color to the raised surface.  When I first looked at it the pink color was too bright, but as the alcohol based ink soaked into the paper the effect turn nicely subtle.

Card Recipe:
DD Stamps: Bride and Groom, Wedding & Anniversary Sentiments
CS and Papers: My Minds Eye Stella Rose, SU Regal Rose
Markers: Copics – C1, C3, C5, E01. 02, RV00, 02, 04, G07
Access. and Embellishments: Wild Orchard ribbon,  Cuttlebug embossing folder, Spellbinder  Label Four and Fleur De Lis Accents, flat lace, Wild Orchard lace, Prema Pearls, "Prema Say It With Chrystals" 
Coloring Medium: Alcohol Inks, Distress Spun Sugar 

Be sure and take a look at what the wonderful Design Team has come up with for your inspiration.
