Pearls & Swirls

Welcome to a new challenge at The Cutie Pies. For most of you this challenge will be a doddle...

Pearls & Swirls

Here is my contribution

It was a great opportunity for my neglected dies to see daylight, I used Frantage AND got the dust cover off the sewing machine too!!  As usual I started with my papers as the base on which to build the design, did a little paper piecing  and coloured Phoebe to match.


I covered the corner and  swirl dies with shabby pink Frantage and then went  bonkers with the pearls!!

Though I say so myself she looks adorable and my team mates have done a fabulous job too, go on pop over and take a look!! I hope you will be inspired enough to join in. Don't forget though that your card must be CUTE!!

I am taking her along to these challenges
