Bella Studio challenge - Flowers and Pearls

It's a lovely day here in Aberdeen today and I have been stuck indoors at my girls school tidying up all the mess made after the Summer Fayre which was on Saturday!
We made loads of money and the kids all had a great time so it was well worth all the hard work we put in organising it :)

Over at the Bella Studio challenge blog, the new challenge has been posted and it's my turn to host this week, so I picked "Flowers and Pearls". I know that won't be a surprise to anyone lol.

So here's what I made.

Isn't this image great? This is Little Cheeky - Cupcake Girl and she is of course from Bella Design Studio. I couloured her with Promarkers, then painted over the image with distress crackle paint and dipped the edges in some glitter while the paint was still wet. You can't really see the crackle in this pic but I will try to takje another one later so you can see it better.
The papers and flowers are Nitwit papers which were free in a magazine! I stitched the edges of the papers by hand (because my sewing machine is broken!!) and I also used the crackle paint and glitter on the flowers. Oh and the heart that is peeking out from behind the image was from the same magazine.
The pearl spray and pin are from my stash.

I hope you can come join in with this weeks challenge!
