Annabelle Stamps Challenge... Pearls

It has unfortunately been far too long since I've entered an Annabelle Stamps challenge. Andrea's products are amazing, so it's really worthwhile visiting her Shop whilst you're about it too.  The challenge this week is for you to use Pearls on your card and as I have plenty of those in stock, I thought I would enter.  Here is my creation... hope you like it!

The digistamp is a very special one and brand new from Elisabeth Bell's range. Read all about it here.  She's a digi stamp and I was fortunate enough to purchase her for the low low price if 8 South African Cents!  She is absolutely adorable and I can see that I'll be using her a lot!  I've coloured her in with my Copics and added some glitter to her fairy wings.  The DP is from Making Memories, Maddi Paisley and was so stunning that I kept this card very simple.  At times I feel we overload the cards with layers and we lose sight of the stunning DP underneath. Further embellies are 2 satin ribbons which I just criss-crossed and added some new flowers for effect. And... for the challenge I've added a few Pearls, different sizes and colours to compliment the card.

I hope you'll feel inspired to visit Annabelle Stamps today. Thanks for all the lovely comments, they really make it all worthwhile... It's almost 1am Sunday morning, so I'd better get some shut-eye, nitety nite... hugs Sharon xoxo
