DCM Bejewelled

Sharon is hosting a fab challenge over at the Daring Cardmakers this week. The dare is to use a piece of jewellery as your inspiration. It could be the colour, the stone or even the design.

I'm not a huge jewellery wearer so thought I'd take a look over on Pinterest for my inspiration. There are just so many gorgeous photos to choose from but I managed to choose this one...



and here is my card.....


I used the cameo and colours as my inspiration.

I created this cameo from a mould I bought from Etsy. I decided to paint this one pink to match the photo. I layered some PTI circles and added some ivory pearls under the cameo.

I used some ivory crochet lace and pink velvet ribbon underneath my scrunchy bow! The seam binding is chalk white but I sprayed http://www.blogger.com/post-create.g?blogID=9206530018705204758with Glimmer Mist to create a more aged / vintage look. I then tied this cute little 'Hello' tag to the underside of my bow.

I really enjoyed creating this card and love how it has turned out.
