Midweek Motivation - Swirls and Pearls

Hello again,

There's still plenty of time to join us this week at Make My Monday with your 'swirly pearly' creations. If you have entered already - many thanx for your support and good luck. If you haven't, then here's a little more inspiration for you from my craft room to yours ...

I made this little set of three gift boxes using kraft card, then decorated them with lots of ink and swirls and pearls.  They are secured together with a piece of gold ribbon (recycled from a box of chocolates!)  I added some little paper roses and a couple of swirl die-cuts to embellish.  

These little boxes are the perfect size to gift a lovely set of jewellery - a matching necklace, bracelet and earrings! What do you think?

I hope you have fun with our challenge this week and don't forget to pop back on Sunday for our next set of winners.

I hope you all had a great weekend, despite the weather.  It's time for our next challenge here at Make My Monday and this week the theme is

I think this is a great theme, which was chosen by one of our retired design team members, and if you are anything like me there are never enough chances to add swirls or pearls! So, we would love to see your interpretation of the challenge theme and remember it can be absolutely anything as long as it showcases those 'Swirls and Pearls'.

Here's what the design team came up with for your inspiration ...

Now it's over to you - please link your projects below and remember to link them back to our blog.  We will be round to visit your blogs over the next week and back with the winners of our last challenge on Sunday.
