Swirls and Pearls over at Pollycraft

It's Monday so that means we have a new challenge for you over on the Pollycraft Challenge Blog.  This week it was my turn to choose the theme and I'm asking that you add some swirls and pearls to your beautiful creations. 

I used Claudia's Tutu from the Spencer and Claudia collection.  I just love this adorable little ballerina bear and thought she would be the perfect image to use with some swirls and pearls.  I colored her using copics and colored pencils and added some Glossy Accents to her nose.  I used white acrylic paint to add some polka dots to her hair bow.  I purchased some of this lovely lace a few weeks ago and thought it would be perfect on this girly birthday card.

Be sure to stop by the Pollycraft Challenge Blog to see the gorgeous creations by the rest of the DT.  I hope you play along in our challenge this week as we're being sponsored by the lovely Emma over at Crafty Emma's Store.  Please stop by her shop and check out the fabulous products she carries.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!
