Simon Says..................Anything Goes with pearls !!!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and this week the challenge is


Please remember to add some pearls, pearlised papers, perfect pearls etc on your creation
We are showcasing BAZZILL PRODUCTS this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Here is my first card - I still haven't the Shabby Chic totally out of my system yet!!! 
We are showcasing Bazzill products this week so I've used all cardstock with them - I chose Bazzill Neutrals together with a little of  Candy Bar. I distressed my edges with Tim Holtz Tonic Paper Distresser
Our Challenge this week is Anything Goes with Pearls  -  I have linked the Prima Swirl Lace Cream, I'm not sure this is the particular one as I lost my packet and had to guess which particular one I used. I also used
Melissa Frances Cream Pearls with the center flowers and the other could are some 'out of sale' Basic Grey pears which are a perfect match.

Materials and Tools 
Papers: Simon Says Stamp White Card Stock, Bazzill Neutrals & Candy Bar

Here is my second card  - being my usual 'wishy washy' way I couldn't make my mind up whether to be more of a Shabby Chic or more Clean & Simple - so I made both!!! I liked both for different reasons!!

The materials are used basically the same I listed before with the additions of the ones list below.
I used Simon Stamps Full Hexagon Craft Die with the previous Bazzill cardstock and used Simon Says Stamp Braclet Edge Die Set and added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Apothercary Die and Lavel Set.
I stamped the sentiment on a My Favorite Things Designer Labels Stax 3,  used Memory Keepers  Power Punch Crop-A-Dile and attached some Tim Holtz's Idea -ology Crinkle Ribbon once I have died it with Distress inks with Mustard Seed

IMHO, you can never have too much shabby chic! Really like the color combos on the first card and the distress edges. Shabby yes, but elegant too!

Lovely coffee and cream embossed panels, and so cool how the flourishes echo the pearls - beautiful, elegant card. And the honeycomb one is so smart and chic - lovely work, as always, Heather!

Great cards, love the shades of colour on the swirly background on the first, but also love the hexagonal background of the second, which feels more modern in contrast! Thanks for joining the Crafty Girls, hope to see you again soon.
