Get well

   For the new challenge starting at Crafty Cardmakers you are asked to use pearls or gems.
   I love the House Mouse characters and have also run out of 'get well' cards so I took the opportunity to satisfy both. The backing paper and decoupage pieces were both printed using the CD ROM from the first House Mouse Designs project book. I wrapped satin purple ribbon which I had taken from some packaging around the printed paper and then matted it onto deep purple core'dinations cardstock and white card. After making up the decoupaged image I matted it onto pink core'dinations cardstock. I also matted the sentiment onto pink core'dinations cardstock, attached it to the centre of the ribbon band and then each side of this glued three graduating purple pearls. Finally I added a bow to the top right hand corner of the image.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Crafty Friends - all things cute
   Dream Valley - all creatures great and small
   The Ribbon Girl - any card
   The Paper Shelter - pearls
   Inspiration Destination - anything goes
   Pile It On - garden creatures
   Crafty Gals Corner - anything goes
