Here is my creation using pearls:

For my card I used the Midnight Madness sketch, some glittered embossed paper from my scrap stash and Green at Heart paper from Basic Grey.  The image Angelica Fairy is from Wags n Whiskers (available at Stamp and Create). The image is framed with  standard large circle nestabilities from Spellbinders  I added mandarin orange cameo prima roses, "snow" kaiser craft pearls, and champagne ribbon (I used the bow easy to create the bow).  The image is colored with copics and glitter was added to the wings.  The edge was created with an EK Success punch.
