Pearls for a ladybug

Evening everyone and TGIF!! Sorry I haven't posted in awhile but I work weekends on a regular basis and I did this past weekend which left no energy for anything else. I did get this card made up for the ladybug challenge which is to use pearls on your card. I used this Wintertime paper by DCWV and it had a snowflake image on it so I added pearls to the edges and although it doesn't show up well there are viva decor light blue pearls inside the snowflake. I also used a clear gellyroll pen to make the branches of the snowflake sparkle a bit. At least this time of year you can bling things up like mad and no one cares! Hope you all gave a good and safe weekend. It is suppose to get colder and start snowing again the beginning of the week but gosh, it sure is pretty coming down and sitting on the branches of the trees. And it does add a little bit to the christmas mood don't ya think?

Hi Amanda. This is so cute. I love the blue for Christmas and your pearls are just perfect! I hope you have this weekend off. As you can see from my blog I have been home all week due to Maddie having whooping cough. It is so unreal for all of us. I get to go back to work on Tuesday, so I am hoping to get a little something sent your way by Wednesday. Hugs, Lisa
