Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 81

This is my design card for Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 81: anything goes with a twist ... add some pearls. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and join in the challenge.

I've used Lacy Sunshine '1920s winter Abby'. kindly supplied by the sponsor. The centre panel of card is an offcut of some that I've had for a long time - much more pearly looking irl. The top and bottom pieces are offcut pearlescent pieces run through an embossing folder. Flowers are from Flourish with a bling (I won some from them), which have those lovely pearl buttons in the centres of the delicate chiffon petals.

This is also for:
