A String of Pearls

It's the first dare of the new month so we'll be looking at the birthstone for June in a minute, but first we want to say a big Thanks You to all who shared their Anniversary cards with us for Lythan's challenge last week. So many beautiful, inspiring cards to see - you really are a talented bunch :)

We're very happy to let you know that Andrea will be staying on with us for another month's worth of dares, how lucky are we to see more of her fab cards on here?
As you really can't get too much of a good thing, we're delighted to welcome a second fabulous Guest Designer to the team this month - we're thrilled to bits that Kaz, of Slightly Wonky Crafts fame has come to play with us for a few weeks. If you've not "met" Kaz yet, then please head over to her blog to see a fab array of her projects

So here we are in the sixth month of the year (isn't 2010 whizzing by?).
The birthstone for June is the
Pearl
We'd like you to use lots and lots of beautiful pearls on your cards this week - or maybe you'll take inspiration from Pearls in another way, for instance the Pearl symbolises loyalty, faithfulness and friendship and is associated with modesty, chastity and purity.

We just know we'll be seeing some fabulous cards this week and we just can't wait to see them - don't forget to come and leave a link when you're ready to share.
Before you get started though, here are the cards the team have made this week.
