pearls swirls and faking it

oh my that title sounds like im describing a woman doesnt it! lol
not me of course cuz i prefer diamonds, if i swirled id hurl cuz i get motion sickness and sadly well weve all had to fake it at some point . so now that im sure ive offended someone ;)..on to my card
i made.. for 2 challenges.
one from Cupcakecrafts whos theme is pearls and swirls. the swirls are on the papers (dcwv luxury stack)
and the pearls you can see are all over this card.
thh other challenge is over at papertakeweekly.. their theme being faking it..anything faux so i used a fiskars punch on the papers behind the main image, creating faux  lace. i think that counts ;)
be sure to go check out both blogs seethe great dt samples plus check out this weeks prizes.
i used my cricut and wild card (couple) and george ( heart, using the negative space  the positive is on the inside) cartridge   added basic grey opaline pearls and a tiny bit of colorbox fluid chalk  
very simple but the papers are so pretty they really make it look like more than 10 minutes was put into it.
so hope you enjoyed and i want to thank ya kindly for stoppin in  i very much appreciate your comments too :)  have a super rest of day :) shelly
