Swirls and Pearls

This weeks challenge over at CD Sunday is Swirls and Pearls. I have used MCS, No Stamp Required, Floral to make this card. The picture has not come out that well, as the weather is so dull and wet here today.
I made a plain coloured background for this, which is so easy to do using the colour pick feature in MCS added the swirl and changed the colour to match. I added the text, then added a couple of butterflies, I printed 4 extra and then decoupaged them. I've added the pearls in 2 sizes. I mounted the image onto white centura pearl card. For the base card I changed the background colour slightly and printed this onto centura card then just folded in half and added a little ribbon.

Thank you for looking
