Pearls and swirls

What another beautiful morning we are having.  It is so warm out there it could be summer!  Or maybe that's just 'cause I never stopped chasing after my 18 month old so I couldn't feel the cold!! He he!

Oh exciting news, I have just made the top 3 in challenge 90 at moving along with the times so thank you ladies.

So onto today's card.
The card is a diamond fold card.  I have used a peper from K & company 'Roam' selection to cover the bottom of the card, matted it onto cream card and wrapped a ribbon around each one before I attatched them to the card.  The top sections have been backed using cream card that i have embossed with swirls, and matted into green card.

I have used a smallish nestability scalloped die and inked it around the edge with green ink for the image to stand on.  The image is a KK download called 'Club Kid' and I have coloured with pro markers and added a few pearls for effect.

The dream big sentiment is from a set of stamps( don't know where i got them or what they are called.  Sorry!)  I have layered it on top of 4 swirl die cuts from marianne creatables and cotton lace I had in my stash!.  The flowers are from Wild orchid.

I have added an arch of pearls in the 2 outer corners  and attached 2 charms to the ribbon

I will be entering this card into the folowing challenges

Thanks for looking.  I hope you like it.
