WT193 Challenge - Pearls

Happy Thursday & thanks for stopping by!! Today's card is for this week's Ways to Use it Challenge "WT193" over at Splitcoast. Sorry about the late posting the last few day's but Hannah has been sick the last couple of days. Since I can't leave the house until my older daughter gets home from school, what is one suppose to do? Laundry... No! How about vacuum... No! Dust?... Nope... Stamp?.... YES!! Since I am still working on my cards for my Christmas Card Giveaway I got right to stamping!! :)

Today's challenge is to find Ways to Use Pearls in your project/card. As some of you know, I am not really a pearl type of girl BUT I do have some so I added a fun pearl on the ribbon and some liquid pearls to the embossed background snow. Those that visit and know my work, now I just LOVE this embossing folder called Winter House by Cuttlebug. The stamped images are from the stamp set Winter Post by Stampin' Up!.
Here is the recipe ~ Stamps: Winter Post Paper: Chocolate Chip, Kraft, Baja Breeze Ink: Chocolate chip, Close to Cocoa, Baja Breeze, White Accessories: Cuttlebug/Winter House - Cut At Home, Label Punch SU, Ribbon, Flowers, Pearls, Liquid Pearls.
Before I go, I am updating my Blog Roll, for those that would like to be added, please leave me a message here or send me an email, I would LOVE to add you. jdmeyer6@sbcglobal.net
Have a wonderful day!! :)

This is gorgeous. I love the snow - it looks great on that CB folder.

Jennifer, that is a gorgeous card. I love it!
I assume you cut the shape out first, then run it through the Cuttlebug? I would think if you embossed first, then cut, it might smoosh the design.

Aww I hope Hannah is feeling a lot better now Jennifer?
They are such a worry when they get sick, aren't they. :0(

I really love this card. The brown and blue are beautiful together and that CB embossing folder together with the Nesty die makes for a beautiful creation.
The pearl accents finish it off a treat.
Luv'n Hugs

Beautiful card, Jennifer! Great job!

The card is breathtaking. I love what you did with the Liquid Pearls. I would rather you do the Follow Me than the blog roll unless you want to do both. I have been going there first to check if they have posted. I've also been considering the Blog roll that shows how long since someone has last posted. It's exciting! Yikes.
