Creative Card Crew #14 DT card

Welcome to the latest challenge at The Creative Card Crew where would like to see lots of pearls and swirls

Our sponsor for this challenge is Simon Says Stamp and they are giving one lucky challenger a gift voucher worth $20 to spend in their store.  Lots to choose from so I'm sure everyone's wish list would come to a lot more than $20 :o)

Check out the DT blogs to see their creations for this challenge.  Now to my card

To me, pearls and swirls conjure up romance and weddings.  The embossing folder and the stamp have a very similar design so have worked well together on this card

I used ivory satin and blue chiffon ribbons tied with a knot.  I didn't want to make life difficult for myself trying to tie two ribbons together in a bow!  The embossing powder is pearl silver

A silver peel off sentiment and some heart shaped pearls finish the card nicely

Heart Swirls stamp from Dimension Stamps
