Whiff Of Joy Challenge #67 --- Pearls and Swirls

The Whiff of Joy challenge this week has me thinking elegance and movement --- Pearls and Swirls.  I had just purchased a package of Prima pearl scrolls and couldn't wait to use them.  This was the perfect project! 

Using a favorite image of Melinda with a basket of muffins (colored with Copics), I chose a bold DP from K&Company "Que Sera Sera" collection of double-sided card stock.  A simple column of brown CS punched with the new Martha Stewart lace punch runs under the image. Then swirls of pearls, topped with a single Prima flower.  Again I went out of my comfort zone with the colors, but I like the results. 
Because WOJ has a wonderful companion stamp of a basket of muffins, I placed that on the inside of the card.  

Leaving the card blank on the inside invites a more personal note, whether it be birthday or just a friendly thought. 

Well, it is Friday already and the weekend is here.  Thank you for taking time to stop by.  I hope you have some good quality time with family and friends this weekend --- that is when you're not blogging and creating!  :-)

Oh my word, what a beautiful pearl swirl and it works 'perfecto' for this card. Your papers and Sweet Melinda look fantastic. She is coloured so beautifully, Barb. Awesome card!
