Its time for a July competition

Over at Bizzy Bec's!  The theme this month is PEARLS and SWIRLS!!
How much easier can it get??  And who doesnt like a bit of swirly and pearly action on a gorgeous creation!!
So I expect to see lots and lots of entries from you all!!

If you have purchased from the store before then you are able to enter. Bec has installed Mr Linky to her July Competition page which you can find at the bottom, so please link your card to that. If you dont have a blog to post your card on, please email Bec your card to  and she will upload it to the Email Entries Blog that she has set up for you.
I have created two cards for this challenge.
This first one use the gorgeous new Tilda with her umbrella from the new Wedding Collection.
I have paper pieced her dress with some Kaiser paper and the rest is coloured with copics.
The pink background paper is from LYB clothesline collection.  Flower is a prima one and that gorgeous swirl I got in a swap I was recently in.

See that cute lady bug charm on the flower??  Bec now has these for sale in her shop!!
They are SO cute!!  go grab yourself some before they are all gone!!

Ok my second card is a bit different for me.

I have cut out the scalloped circle with a large scallopped circle nestie but have used the negative not the actual die cut.  i then place a doiley behind it and popped CC designs 'Honey' on top.
The swirl is a sizzlets one I dug out of my stash.
See that super cute ticket i have used...well its available in Bizzy Bec's Digital shop.
Yes Bec sells some digital elements, including papers and tickets and images.

Honey is coloured with copics.
And see those pearls in the corners??  they are the new pearl brads available now from Becs!
i am also entering this second card into the challenge over at Simon Says which is calling for checks!

TFL and dont forget to enter into the competition over at  Bizzy Becs!!

I love both of your cards, Leonie! that Tilda with umbrella is so cute and you have colored her beautifully! On the second card, I like the idea of using the negative side of the punched scallop circle and placing the doily behind it. Both cards are gorgeous! Thanks for sharing! Hugs, Cami

Great job on piecing your little Tilda, and that swirl is the perfect finishing touch to a beautiful card.

Both cards are lovely Leonie and I really really like the swirl on Tilda's card. I might have to look into those :)
