Birthday Nikki

And it's me again, I promise this is the last post today I just wanted to make sure everything was on before dealines and tomorrow is hopefully going to involve a lie in (I've not slept the last couple of nights so a lie-in is much needed) then putting up the decorations and then off to my cousin's boyfriend's 21st birthday party - I know how inconsiderate where they?!? they really should have planned it around strictly and xfactor lol ah well fingers crossed they both record ok and must remember not to look at Facebook lol.

Anyways onto the card, this is for another of my cousin's birthdays next week, scary how quick time goes lol I can remember her doing our make-up for us when she was about 5 (will have to see if I can dig out the picture - think clowns lol). So anyways the challenge from the Ladybugs was to use pearls, I've used a row of them along the bottom of one of the papers, I have to say they're not my favourite embellishment to use - they just can't compete with the sparkley gems lol but I think they work there, just finishing the card off nicely I think sparkle would have been a bit much with all the glitter and glossy accents, and yay finally got to use my 'Birthday Nikki' Stamp.

Supplies: 'Birthday Nikki' & Sentimental Numbers Stamps by Ladybug Crafts Ink, Papers by My Mind's Eye, Sugar-Coating by Doodlebug
Extras: White Card, Purple Ink Pad, Pearls, Glossy Accents, Promarkers, Copics

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges...

As soon as I saw her dress Helen the Suga Babes song went through my head lol. I wonder why it wasn't Lady in Red??? Anywho...flabublous card and I LOVE the pearls at the bottom. I know what you mean about the sparkle of crystals but pearls are so chic, elegant and sophisticated...just like Nikki!! xx

What? Pearls can't compte with gems? You're mocking my favorite embellishment? Ok, ok, can't discuss anyone's taste... You made a lovely card, love your pink paper (yes, the one that has pearls on it...) Thank you very much for playing in the Ladybug Crafts Ink pearl challenge!
