Another COMBO card creation ...

This card was created for today's Color Throwdown Challenge and the sketch challenge over on SCS.


Here are the materials details:

Stamps: Embrace Life, Wordsworth

Papers: Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Always Artichoke, Basic Grey (porcelain)

Inks: Versafine black

Accessories: Detail Clear EP, Fiskars Apron Lace Border Punch, Basic Grey Opaline Pearls, Faiser Pearls, dimensionals, Fiskars swivel craft knife





I just love how you can now find pearls in all colors and sizes! I think they make such a wonderful addition to any card! Here I've used them to accent the flower center as well as using the larger pearls for a finishing touch in the lower corner. (click on the image for a closer look)



Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed this creation!! Have a wonderful day in whatever you are doing!!
