Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 123

This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 123: anything goes with a twist ... add some pearls. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of others in the team and we hope you will be able to join in our challenge.

I used an image kindly given by Dazzling Ace Designs, sponsors of the challenge.

The spotty papers are offcuts of Papermania lemon sorbet capsule papers. The gingham piece was rescued from a card received. I used an offcut piece of green card to die cut the ballet shoes using the Tattered Lace die, cutting it (successfully, thankfully) on my todo. A few pearls added here and there, a couple of Hobbycraft flowers and a birthday sentiment and the card was finished.

Sorry, the photo is a bit dull looking in parts - good light was already fading.
