Different bling comes and goes from rhinestones, buttons and sequins… even such things as feathers and beads.  But for me my favorite has always been pearls.  They have gotten harder to find in the usual stores and online places, but I still just can’t get enough of them.  So with today’s card, I let myself go. Smiley.GrinHugeAni


The floral image oval piece has been popped up on foam tape for some dimension, and a little ribbon snippet tucked in at the bottom.  Two narrow strips of coordinating designer paper were added top and bottom.


A little bit of embossing shows above the blooms.

    Sarn is commenting for the Playground this week but I spotted that this came up under SplitCoastStampers so am leaving a comment just in case Sarn can’t.

  15. I love pearls, too, Susan and still have quite a few, but mostly the larger ones left. Trying to get more handy with the pearl pen so I won’t run out of pearls. This is sooooo pretty! Those stamps are gorgeous and look fabulous in the scalloped oval. Love that bit of embossing above. Also love the punched corners. Such a nice way to spruce up a layer.
