Elisabeth Bell lounge room card

Hi there, Paper Crafting Journey have just started their latest challenge and it's one of my favourites - Pearls and swirls. The sponsor is none other than the fabulous Elisabeth Bell therefore we got to play with an Elisabeth Bell image this time round. Straight away this gorgeous crafty girl image felt like it should be part of a little scene and I have wanted to try making "wallpaper" on a card for ages as so many designer papers have a wallpaper pattern to them. I made the little frame and plant pot with some wood-printed paper and distressed their edges. 

The beautiful pearl flourish and "plant" (part of the Jack vine set) is from Flourish with a Bling and you can buy them HERE.

Flourish with a Bling are a retail store as well as wholesale so you can buy direct from us now! We have some fantastic themed packs (eg. Bling, vintage, fairy garden, boys, princess etc) at amazing prices, you can check them all out by clicking here. If you mention my blog (Lucy) when ordering we will send you a bonus Jasmine laser flourish!
