Now let’s see what the team have made for us for this weeks challenge! 

Scatty Jan - For my card I used the great Girls Hoot Digi Downloads . Such a fab collection of owls, Papers, Sentiments and Emblies. I am really loving shaped cards at the moment so went with the apron card. Added some pearls around the apron frill and some bling to the top xx

Crafting Vicky Wow I have to say that I love the idea of Pearls and bling!  So much easier for a challenge lol.  So  had lots of ideas... and I ended up making a totally girly card for this challenge!  I used the totally awesome Work and Play collection 2 for my card.  I used the fabulous Ballerina and some great papers as well.  You can't get more "girly" than this!
Sharon - I love pearls but don't really do bling so have got my sparkle from glitter for this week's theme. I have chosen the Sugarplum Daisy CD and used one of the toppers from the collection. Choosing colors from the topper I have used an aqua card and a purple dotty backing paper - Who knew these would go together! The border and sentiment are also from the cd. (I have colored the sentiment to match in with my color scheme.) Although they don't show so well in the photos I have put tiny pearls in the centre of the daisies in the pretty fairy's hand and fairy dust on her wings! larger purple pearls are on the corners and sentiment.

Julie - I have made a diamond shaped card that can be displayed in the three ways...The gorgeous image I have used for my card is called Singin Sally and is available in the Polkadoodles Digi Store HERE, its also available on the Work and Play 1 download, which can be downloaded immediately so no waiting for a CD to arrive. The pretty backing papers I have used are also from Work and Play 1 Download.  For my bling I have added pink and beige pearls to the corners of the image and added gems to the dots on her hair bow. I have also added a pearl embellishment to the centre of the bows on each side of the card.

Yvonne - Hi there! Well for a theme of Pearls & Bling, I had to use a wedding image. I chose to use Emma Canning's 'Bride' - now get this quick because it is about to be discontinued from the Polkadoodles Store but for now you can get it for 35p - that's THIRTY FIVE pence folks!!!  I coloured her with my Graph'It Markers - the colours used are on my blog.  I chose to use papers from the Rose Bundle papers. I added my ribbon, pearl swirls and bling for the finishing touches! 

Fantastic ideas here for you from the team, as always!!
