Yes it’s true . . . I try to deny it but I think it shows. Yes, I try to slip a card in here and a card in there, but it seems like there’s always something on the corner of my desk that’s pink. I surrender! I’m swamped with quite a few deadlines and I finished up this card that has been waiting in the wings for a while – I was just rationing pink! This is a sweet set from Flourishes called Fanciful Flourishes, that I’ve been dying to get inky. I love damask, it absolutely makes my heart sing, so it was quite satisfying to work the motif into a background. You know what that means don’t you? No hunting for hours for the right paper, because I made the perfect one myself ;-)
For the romantic shape of the card I used Spellbinders Grand Labels One. Since the card is predominantly white, I wanted the bottom to seem like eyelet fabric so I punched a border. Then I added white lace, pearls and ribbon. I stamped the small sentiment on Spellbinders Floral Doily Accents and threaded my ribbon through to hold it in place. Lastly, I stamped the damask butterfly (on both sides) and the solid butterfly on another paper then cut them all out with Spellbinders Fanciful Flight. The flower was already made and I pulled together the pieces for my pearl pick.
