Sketch with stripes and pearl sheen

Morning all. I've finally got round to doing last Saturday's sketch challenge for CMLI which has a twist of 'stripes'. I also went for a few pearls and and embossed die cut with a pearly sheen as that seems to be quite popular at the moment.

I think you can get away with a plain and fairly exposed base card if you use shimmer materials on it somewhere. What do you reckon?

I shall also enter this into:
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - pearls
The ABC Challenge - P is for Pearls
Anything Goes - die cuts


  1. Well you KNOW I'm much in to Clean And Simple at the moment so I think you can get away with much less than you think you can!!! That said this is a lovely card Nicola and I love your sentiment - who's it by?
