Sweet Stampin DT Card

Yays its saturday and this is preposted as were away in Alton Towers with my hubbys brother and his family so wont be around this weekend. 6 kids and I think rain, but I'm sure we'll be enjoying ourselves.
This week over at the Sweet Stampin Challenge, its "Team Carrie's" turn and we have a fantastic sketch for you to play with. I have used one of the new Tilda's and coloured her with Pencils and Sansador. The backing paper is a new Mangolia one to and it was pure coincidence that these matched as I'd already coloured the image. Die cut with my Nellie Snellie Oval and added a Rose Viva Pearl Pens all around. Bazzill cardstock and the large MS Border Punch (forgotten its name now) behind the image and the MS Heart Border Punch for the Edges. Assorted flowers, all stickled, Pearl Gems, Pearl Bead Spray and a Sentiment. I've also stickler around the edges of the paper as I do like a bit of sparkle.

A slight challenge rule change. Please only enter a maximum of 2 entries from now on please.
I will be back in blogland Monday. All the kids back in school and hopefully a day to catch up.

Thats it for now.
Thankyou so much for stopping by my blog today and all the wonderful comments I've received on my last card. I love reading them all and just the boost I need when I've got brain freeze!
The rest of my teams have made beautiful cards to. I know they'd appreciate you taking a look.

This is gorgeous Claire! I love that border punch and I am so impressed/jealous that you can do "non-pointy pearls"!. They are so neat i thought you had dry embossed them. When I try to to nice round pearls on my cards, i need to write a health warning on the back as you could cut yourself on them!
Have a great weekened
