Pink, Pearls & Pretty Celebration @ MAWTT

Morning all ! 

Another Thursday down and it is time for a new challenge at 

This week Mau is in the hot seat and she has picked ... 
Pink, Pearl & Pretty Celebration
Ooohhh pink, pearls and pretty! This girl CAN DO!

I made an ornament specifically for my Valentines decor tree but I am hopping I will get double use of out this baby and hang it for Christmas as well :))  I have not told hubby yet but I plan on buying a small white tree to place 'around' the house' so I can have a touch of a pink and white Christmas somewhere.  For the moment he is on a need to know basis and he don't need to know lol 

I started with a Marianne Creatables heat die for the base, covered it with some pretty pink DP from my scraps stash, added two rows of lace behind in the pink and white.  The flowers are homemade from silk with some beads sewn into the centers to match the homemade bead sprays and the sentiment is from Kaisercrafts - Homemade Clear Stamps - love ticket that I cut up to make look like scrabble tiles. The butterflies are from an EK Success butterfly border punch and as per my usual, to finish everything off, there is a touch or two of TH Distress inks and a few extra pearls.

is our great sponsor this week with a great prize up for grabs.
