Going all Pearly Swirly at the Cutie Pie Challenge!

Hey, hope all is well with you and yours.  Well personally I am feeling a little vintage today. Why you ask? Well yesterday I was officially one year away from half a century on this planet. Half a century! Shouldn’t I get a letter from the Queen or something?  Do you think she will make me a card?  Hmmmmmmmmm. Perhaps not.

Any road up, today, apart from the rapid onset of old age, I would like to share my DT card for the CutiePie challenge this fortnight and our theme is: Pearls & Swirls! Yummy!

We are sponsored by


 And one lucky winner will win a $10 gift voucher to spend on their gorgeous and adorable digis in their online store 


I chose to use a Bildmalarna stamp this time called Little Winged Friends Together which I bought from TheStamp Basket.  I coloured her with Spectrum Noirs and paper-pieced her dress (although that’s not particularly obvious).




The base card is Centura Pearl, cut using Spellbinders Grand Labels One, coloured with PanPastels then embossed. And the swirls are from Tonic and the butterflies are cut using an X-Cut punch.



I added liquid pearls all over the place and sat a metal butterfly charm on top of my Silky Crush bow.  The sentiment is from Kanban.



So there you are. Please scoot over to the Cutie Pie blog  check out all the DT loveliness and join in with all the pearly swirly fun, oh and don’t forget to make it cute!!

Thanks so much for looking.
See ya!


Colourful hugs
Jane xx

  24. Happy Birthday! I'm sure the Queen is shopping her royal stash as we speak, getting ready to make your card for next year. This card is such a cool design. I love the shape and those flourishy vines that frame the sweet image. The butterfly and bow on the corner makes a lovely element. Thanks for joining our Birthday Bonanza Challenge at Craft Your Passion Challenges this week. I hope we see you again soon.
