DYSU #39 - Swirls

Welcome back to a new challenge here at Do You Stack Up?! We are very excited to announce two of our new DT members today!  They are Jan Garber and Mary Eason and we are SO happy that they've joined us!

Back to the challenge at hand...this week, we want to see you create a project using.....
Swirls!


This week's Sponsors:





Dearie Dolls
Dearie Digi Paper Doll and Four Outfit Pages for Different Holidays and Everyday


Stitchy Bear Designs
Prize



Prize Package

Here is my card for this week:





This time around, I was given this cute digi by Stitchy Bear called Sunday Morn to use.  I coloured it up with Copic markers, cut it out with one of the Spellbinders Classic Squares dies  and threw it on top of this beautiful Lacey Squares die-cut that I also cut out with Spellbinders.  I adorned the Lacey Squares die-cut with lovely Light Coffee pearls that I got from Pizzazz Aplenty.  I used this beautiful swirly DP from the MME - Stella & Rose - Hattie 6x6 paper pad.  To add even more swirly goodness, I added this yummy latte coloured pearl flourish from Recollections...last week when I made a trip across the border to do some crafty shopping with my mom, I got a bunch of Recollections bling and flourishes at Michael's...all Recollections embellishments were 50% off PLUS I had a 20% off coupon for my entire purchase so I think I scored a 2-pack of these flourishes for $0.79!  Gotta LOVE those sales!  I always keep an eye out for deals like this...otherwise, I'd be BROKE with this hobby....Ok, I STILL am but, I have a lot more to show for my money!  ;)

If you'd like to know any of the products I've used, I am including a detailed Supply List at the bottom of this post.

Anyway, I really do hope that you'll head on over to DYSU and check out the inspiration that the rest of our talented gals have for you as well as welcome our FABULOUS new DT members!  Oh, and of course, I would LOVE to see what you can do to incorporate SWIRLS into your project!
