Totally Gorjuss (DT) - Swirly Whirly

Well hello to you all.... We had our first rain and cooler weather on Thursday evening.  I think Autumn is on its way and has definitely made itself known...

Welcome to another challenge with the Totally Gorjuss girlies.  Net has a lovely one for us this week... it's SWIRLY WHIRLY.

I was just sharing with my DT sisters that I really admire those girls who produce such beautiful pearl and rhinestone swirls.  How you do it, I don't know!  So, with that being said, please excuse my little Marianne Die swirl, but that's the best I could muster...LOL   I hope the rest of the card makes up for it!

This is Tilda as a Star, a newbie in my collection.  Oh I just love her to bits!!! Isn't that little hairstyle the sweetest ever?  She's available at the Magnolia-licious store.  OK, I can just see my fellow Maggie-lover buddies nodding in agreement and the non-Maggie-lover buddies, raising an eyebrow!   hehehe  Just as well we all have our own tastes, or else blogland would be so b-o-r-i-n-g!  As long as we can appreciate each other's styles and tastes, that's all that matters hey!

OK, I digress.... the papers I've used are NEW from Scrap-a-Doodles,  It's my first Martha Stewart 12x12 paper pad, Vintage Girl and I just adore each and every page. There are 42 pages in the pack so it works out to around R4.50 per page.

I've added some beautiful lace and a satin ribbon with a button.  To complete the picture is a Marianne Die swirl, a MS Butterfly, a Whimsy sentiment and a few pearls.

With such gorgeous paper, you just have to decorate the inside as well. Here's a little peek!

And those stars in Tilda's hair and outfit just had to get a dash of glaze as well to make them pop. Not sure if you can pick it on on this pic.

That completes my post for today.  Before I go, we need to thank our sponsor for this week's challenge.   It's Meyer Imports.  Please pay them a visit for all your crafty needs.  And whilst you're about it go visit their BLOG... ooohhhhh, better make a cuppa tea first, as you'll be there for quite some time!!!

Thanks so much for popping by.  I'd love to know what you think of my card, as I really enjoyed making this one too.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
