ABC Challenge - P is for...

Thank you for all of the fabulously 'Orderly' cards last week - I do hope that I managed to visit you all...you may have noticed that we (along with lots of other challenge sites) had problems with Mr Linky going AWOL...so if you did want to be considered for the guest DT spot for June, please leave a link your project for last week's 'Orderly' challenge in a comment on this post before 8pm tonight.

This week the ABC Challenge is being sponsored by:

And one lucky challenger will receive one of the new release of Whimsy Stamps...a really cheeky monkey...as a prize.

This week, we have reached the letter P...and we would like to see Pearls on your cards.

The Design Team were all sent images by Whimsy Stamps, and I received this fun skunk...so I decided to go for a monochrome look to mirror the colouring on him (or her...I'm not quite sure! lol). As the image is quite large, I decided to keep the layout quite simple, with some dotted paper by Doodlebug, and a strip of white card, embossed with my 'Swiss Dots' folder, across the centre. I added small white adhesive pearls in the scallops around the image, and larger black pearls in the corners, and the flowers (from Poppicrafts) are held in place with a Papermania pearl brad.


Don't forget to stop by and check out the rest of the Design Team's creations for more inspiration.
