Hello, and a very happy start to a new week!!!  I hope everyone in blogland is happy and well.

Last week I mentioned attempting to post a picture of a card I'd made but couldn't upload because my Picasa Album account was full.  By the time I'd purchased more space, it was time to post my DT project for Pam -- which I'm so glad you enjoyed -- but which delayed my posting the card.  So today the card is my share with you.

As I mentioned, it's not such a great card; I messed up applying the pearls but I didn't think it so bad it couldn't be posted.  Here's the front of the card:

This is the inside of the card:

I really should have used scraps instead of using my card to practice drawing the pearl swirls, I should have just left well enough alone... but that's not me, lol!!!  Oh well, I'm working on a couple of challenge cards, so I'll be back real soon!

I'll be seeing you!

Audrey love the way you have added the ribbon and the pearl dots.
About Picasa, I started blogging in 2010 too but still have space in the free account despite the numerous tutorial photos I post..do resize your photos with fast stone or some other free photo editing software to around 500x 500 pixels or max 640x 480 pixels that way you will have lots of space
