Pearls & flowers at Mo's!

Happy Thursday! Whooohoooo! Y'know what that means, right? It means it's time for another fun challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog!! Our very own talented - and now, quite famous South African TV star - Paola, is our hostess again this week! And she's come up with another fun challenge theme: Pearls & Flowers. Seriously, it was like sweet, sweet music to my ears when I heard this week's theme! LOL!

I used a cutie patootie Mo Manning image named Nelly!! You can find her, along with hundreds of other fabulous images, at Mo's DP2 online store! I'd been admiring some of your "Nelly" cards these past weeks and thought I lacked the patience to color all of those leaves and petals. Well, d'ya know what I discovered? I was RIGHT!! I DON'T have the patience to color each and every petal and leaf! LOL! But...I powered through...and I'm actually quite pleased with the results! Phewwww! I have to admit, slowing down and coloring such teensy little items was uber relaxing...and  very enjoyable! Who knew?! hehehe!! Here's a little artsy view...

I broke out my Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities...the circle and scalloped circle...and just got busy layering these scrumptious October Afternoon DPs and SU Certainly Celery cardstock. Then I used some string pearls to weave in and out of my nestie, added some individual pearls, attached some gorgeous roses from Wild Orchid Crafts...stuck on a couple of little bows...and voila!!! Cute, huh? I've decided to enter this little cutie into Wild Orchid's Challenge # 24 as well.

Now...pop on over to Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog and take a peek at the gorgeous paper creations made by my incredibly talented DT sisters....then make your own fabby project using at least one Mo Manning image and some pearls and flowers. Be sure you enter your masterpiece into this week's challenge...just link to the little Blue Frog thingie. And, who knows? You may just win a free Mo Manning digi image!! YAY!!

Thanks so much, my darlins'. I always love it when you come to visit...and I especially love it when you take the time to leave me fact, it truly makes my day!! Hugs to you all. Until next time...
