CES Challenges - Swirls and Pearls

Morning all - hope you're enjoying the Easter break so far. So lovely to think that there's still another two days ahead before the dread return to work!
Today's card is for our new challenge at CES Challenges with our theme chosen by our wonderful Vicky which is SWIRLS AND PEARLS.  

My image  is from Crafts and Me, another gorgeous Jasmine Becket-Griffith called Marie Masquerade.  Just love her hair wiht the little ship in it!! 
I've used loads of goodies from Crafty Emma's Store, including the papers- Authentique Genuine, Flourish Card Blank, Glamour Dust, Craftwork Card sentiment, grey pearls, the flower and of course, my trusty Flex and Promarkers.
I've also used a Go Create die (I think) to create the frame, and a fabulous Memory Box die for the flourish.

Hope you will play along with us at CES Challenges this week, don't forget that you could win the £10 voucher to spend in Crafty Emma's store.  The rest of the gorgeous DT cards can be seen here if you need any inspiration to get the creative juices flowing!!

Off to visit my niece today who has just moved into a new house, so need to go and get dressed now!
