Whiff of Joy challenge - Pearls and Swirls

This week on Whiff of Joy Challenge we want to see pearls and swirls on your cards.  I combined the two by using one of the Bazzill Jewel templates (flowers and flourishes) – I marked the dots with a pencil then just popped some self adhesive pearls on the marks and had a quick, easy and cheap pearl swirl.  This is so going to save a fortune – I love the Prima swirls but balk at the prices sometimes.  This way I don’t feel guilty lol.

I have used Willow with Champagne from Whiff of Joy which I have coloured with distress inks.  The papers are Cloud 9 from The Hobby House.  I used one of the Martha Stewart around the page punch sets for a fancy border.  The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I blinged them with some Cafe au Lait Glimmer Mist.
