Dazzling Diamonds and Pretty Pearls

Hello dear blog friends,

The past couple of weeks was so busy and I couldn’t believe I wasn’t creating anything for about a month. It was such a joy to pick up some of my crafting stuff on Friday to do this card for The Shabby Tea  Room challenge. I have the privilege to guest design for The Shabby Tea room this week and the challenge theme is “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend”. The details of the challenge is to create a card or project inspired by the colours in the inspirational photo and include pearls and/or crystals. Hope you like my take on the challenge!

Challenges:

My card with the colours white, black, grey-blue and a hint of pink. I added pearls, crystals and glitter
