Michelle let's me play along and I get to go FIRST! woohoo!

I used a RED version of the Parrot Tulip from the Pre-coloured set and decoupaged it.  The paper is a freebie from Bearly Mine Designs.  I accented the oval with frosted lace Stickles and some black pearl string.

EDIT- I was asked how I attach my pearl string - I have used Zip Dry or Ranger Inkssentials  Matte Accents Glue. You have to work fast with the Zip Dry.  I make a small bead line of glue in 3-4" sections and lay pearls in it and hold in place until it sets or seems to stay put.  Lately I am preferring the Matte Accents.  :)

OK, my special word is....  Hippety   Now please go to the next hop stop at  Donna's BLOG.

Here is list of the BLOG HOP Participants, in case you lose your way :)
