Hello Everyone, I am back again for my monthly posting for Pinque Peacock Design Team.  This month, I have a nice card to share with you. Again, I have used the
Pearl Beaded Stick Pin from Pinque Peacock.  I am always amazed at how a beautiful stick pin and make a world of difference in a card.

I will be honest, I scraplifted this idea from a friend.  She was making cards similar to these and I really liked the simplistic nature of them, and wanted to create a few of my own.

I don't recall if the paper used came from DCWV or Recollections. Mostly because a friend of mine shared her paper stack with me and I no longer have the wrapping.  I will be honest, I use this paper sparingly, I really like it and I am afraid if I use it all, I won't be able to purchase anymore of it.  I know, that sounds terrible doesn't it?


The ribbon is from 3GirlsJam, topped off with a gold pearl button (I Love adding pearl buttons to my cards) and embellished with a beautiful Pearl Beaded Stick Pin from Pinque Peacock. 

As I said, the addition of the beautiful stick pin makes this card special and really changes the elegance of the card.  I love adding the pins to my cards and this one really seemed to fit well with the card.  I carefully tucked the end of the pin under the paper for the sentiment.  I wanted to ensure no one stuck themselves with the sharp point of the pin.

I used two stamps to complete the sentiment.  The Happy Birthday is from Stampin' Up "Bring On the Cake" and the flourish are from Close To My Heart "Swirls Around Flair".
