Midway Reminder at Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Maganolia Challenge #132-"Pearls or Gems"

Happy Sunday dear blogging friends!!

I hope that you're all enjoying a most wonderful weekend!

Today we're at the  midway point in our "Pearls or Gems" challenge at Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia!!  Our sponsor for this challenge is the wonderful Live and Love Crafts!  You still have almost two weeks to inspire us with your creations AND a chance to win the Live and Love prize!

Now I have to tell you that I've been struggling lately with the mojo...hmmm...time to think outside the box...I need something different...hmmm...different colours??!!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
so the card base is a basic 6X6 square...
then I fashioned a fan from some of my beloved Maja paper...
I went with the navy/white paper as it seems that pink and pales blues are my normal go to colours...
the fan is finished off with ruffle ribbon topped with a pearl strand...
then I added a few feathers around the base...
 this sweet little image is "Sakura Tilda" from the Sakura 2015 collection..
coloured with my copics...
dusted with Frantage and I added Liquid Pearls randomly around her...
and YES that is pink lace with gems...
 and YES pink and pale blue (well it is my fav colour combo after all) flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts...
threaded throughout is another strand of pearls...
"birthday girl" is Hero Arts...
 the back...
Well that was a bit of a change I think!!  Now won't you please check out my talented team mates' creations over at Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia then come on over and join us!!
