I've made this card with a few challenges in mind.

The layout is from the sketch that Heidi’s provided for her Little Stamp Shoppe.

Stamp With Fun’s Challenge #17 this week is Pearls.

At Simon Says Stamp Challenge, their current challenge is LETS GET DISTRESSING !!

And wouldn’t you know it, Distressing is also the theme for Just Magnolia's Week 16 Challenge.

I've put some folds in Tilda's blouse. What do you think? I'm still trying to figure out where the highlights should be. Hmm...
I've gone pearl-crazy as you can see.
Did some heavy distressing, but in the picture the distressing looks lighter than in real life. The flowers are also distressed.

Here's the inside of my card, which took me a while longer to finished (this picture is posted on the next day. Had to have some shut eyes in between--LOL.)

A small announcement here. Kellie from Magnolia Down Under Challenges has asked me if I would like to stay on for another 6 months. Woo hoo. Of course I would!!! I am very honoured to be asked to join the DT ladies at MDUC. Thank you, Kellie. I feel humbled by this.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your weekend everyone.

How absolutely awesome, Norma! Love the colors you chose and the pearls (because I use them alot also!) and your coloring of Tilda is just perfect. You really got the hightlights and shading in all the right places, and I know it's not easy to do. I can just feel the breeze that is blowing her blouse around...hugs...Barb
