Whiff of Joy ~ Pearls and Swirls......

Good Morning!
Wow this is in the nick of time! haha
The challenge over at Whiff of Joy this week was:
Pearls and Swirls.
I finally got to ink up this beautiful image, Shopping Willow,
from the City Girl Collection.
Also at A Spoonful of Sugar today they have a challenge to use:
Glitter, pearls and Distress inks.
(I have used my glitter pen around the edges but it is hard to see!)

Like I have seen alot of others do these bags were just
begging to be paper pieced!  I got some new
pretty paper from My Mind's Eye and they were perfect for it!
My image was colored in with distress inks and twinkling h20's
and the sentiment is a rub-on.
It is funny because when I use to many colors I am not sure
if I like it or not!  I am definitely into more neutral colors!

Well I hope you all have a wonderful day!
It is raining here and personally I would rather have snow!
See you tomorrow with a new challenge at La La Land!
