Polka Dots and Pearls

Hi Folks
Hope you are well and managing to get through your week.  I love Wednesdays as it is halfway to the weekend.  Mind you, I am on the rota to work on Saturday so a six day week for me this week.  I only have to work one Saturday in every four so not too bad.  Will probably spend most of Sunday sleeping lol.

As it is Wednesday today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our challenge theme this week is:
Polka Dots and Pearls
We do need to see both of these on your project.

We have two great sponsors joining us this week:
StampArt - a prize of 5 digi images to the winner
Sassy Studio - a prize of 4 digi images to the winner

Here is my inspiration project using a cute image called Alannah & Snowball from StampArt Design. 

I decided to go for a monchrome theme and just lightly coloured the image with grey promarkers.  I also added lots of stickles but the sparkle is not really showing up.  The polka dot paper is from Papermania and all the matting was done onto black card.  Around the image I stuck some pearl strings that I got from the Hobby House many months ago.  I think it gives the effect of a frame.  Some poinsettias from my stash, a bow and a large pearl dazzler finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and I am looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges for full challenge details.  Don't forget to check out the lovely creations from my talented teamies.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
