Hello Everyone! I have a very pretty card to share with you toady. For those of you who follow me on a regular basis, know I hate to waste paper and often turn to my scrap bin to find some scraps of my favorite papers. This card is no different, other than the papers are not mine, but those of a friend. She always gives me all of her scraps and I add them to my own box of scraps. I am so thankful for all the pretty papers in my box. And generally can make an entire card from just scraps, as I have done today. Before I show you my card, I want you to see this fabulous Pearl Beaded Stick Pin from Pinque Peacock. WOW, aren't the colors in this pin just fabulous?!?!?!?
This is one of those cards that I had no idea where I was going when I started, I just knew I like this paper combination and wanted to use it. It was not until I was done with the card, and had the sentiment added that I knew it needed something more for embellishments. More than just the bow.
First I grabbed for my box of Pinque Peacock flowers, but did not find what I was looking for so I moved on to my Pinque Peacock buttons, and again, I was not satisfied with what I was seeing. Finally, I turned to my box of beautiful stick pins and found just the perfect colors for this card. This beautiful pearl stick pin works perfectly with the colors of my card. After I added my bow and this tiny rose (from a friend) the addition of the Pinque Peacock Stick Pin finished off my card perfectly.
Here is my card. What do you think, isn't that stick pin a perfect fit?
I would highly recommend you check out this awesome bundle that Jessica has put together to support Breast Cancer Awareness. She calls it Pinque Hope. I have mine ordered, I hope you will do the same.
Thanks for stopping in to check out my project today.
