Pearls and Gems

Pop across and join in our fab new challenge
Pearls and Gems, 
I just love to use both.  I have had the Pretty Sweet collection for ages but only last week discovered some lush papers on it that I totally fell in love with, so much so that I have used them on 3 cards, for upcoming DT projects

 Both papers used are from the collection but I just adore the one with squares and faux stitching  on , it comes in a variety of different colours too. I coloured up Luna using Graph'It Markers ,

 cut out some extra squares and punched some flowers, and pearls and gems to finish.

Ohhhh I really loved making my little bird house this week. The die that I used is the Jolly Bumblebees memory box havent used it for far to long - I glittered up his wings using star dust stickles.

I cut the little house on my portrait . The roof was cut from paper from 
Work and Play 1 collection (as was the branch) 

 The nuts and ladybird were from

  The flag banner is from Picknix cd and the main paper , birds, and flowers from the 

It's so much fun working with all the collections , there are plenty on each but it's also great that they mix and match. The little tiny leaves ontop of the house are a punch
