Pearls & Swirls ~ Tilda

Tilda all dressed up for pearls and swirls.

Since ancient times, the pearl has been a symbol of unblemished perfection. It is the oldest known gem, and for centuries it was considered the most valuable.

A fragment of the oldest known pearl jewelry, found in the sarcophagus of a Persian princess who died in 520 BC, is displayed in the Louvre in Paris.

 The Latin word for pearl literally means "unique", attesting to the fact that no two pearls are identical.

This was a fun card to design. I used Copic pens to color.
Nestie scalloped oval and basic oval shape. MS dotted scallope punch.
Cuttlebuy swirl template. Flowers from WOC, lace from JoAnn's, pearls and ribbon from my stash.

Enjoy a wonfderful sweet day.

Just Keep On Creating ~ Anything Goes/Travel Story
This card reminds me of getting all dressed up to go to Gramma's house for Sunday dinner after church. Oh those memories are the best ! We would travel through the city to get to her house and to see all the big huge buildings along the way, was always interesting to us who lived in the country on a farm, where the biggest building was the barn....LOL.., ;-)
