Pearls are girl's best friend

Ugh, I've been working on today's cards since wee morning, and it's midninght now - but finally I finished!
It was one of these days (my baby bug is teething) hence the lack of time, but also some of the cards would be more elaborate than my usual stuff. I think they were worth the effort though :)
It's late, so excuse me for not being too "talkative" from now on...

Here's my first card, and I made it for:
Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C26 (which is to use at least three different textures. Well, here ya' go - I think I got a little over the top with them LOL)
Our Creative Corner Sketch Challenge
Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 19
This is my last non-DT submission for the Curtain Call! If you're not sure what I mean, please refer to my previous post :)

Supplies: cardstock: Quill, DCWV; stamps: Flourishes; Cuttlebug & Perfectly Paisley, Swiss dots embossing folders; pearls: Kaisercraft; ink: Grant Baby Pink, ColorBox Orchid Pastel, Dark Peony; blender pen; golden embossing powder; sand paper; lace: stash

Next card is made for another fantastic sketch at CPS (CPS156) & Dawn's Color Cue Challenge #1 (it's a "replacement" for Inspire Me Challenges). This one was quick, and no stamps were hurt ;)

Supplies: cardstock: Quill, DCWV; paper: digital; rub-ons: Basic Grey, Fynmark; pearls: Michaels; sewing machine

Lastly, there's my submission for the "last chance" SFYTT, and The Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC18:

Supplies: cardstock: Quill, DCWV; paper: DCWV, Bo Bunny, Kaisercraft, page from an old book; pearls: Kaisercraft; sentiment sticker: SRM Stickers; stamp: Kaisercraft (used for a butterfly shape template); ribbon, lace, button & twine: stash

I hope you like these! I won't mind if you take time to write about it... :P
