I have been brooding this card for a while - it is a birthday card for my SIL. I had made the flowers from tissue paper by cutting out lots of scalloped circles with my SU punch, and then spraying them with my bottle of Peppermint Stick Glimmer Mist and they do shimmer! When they were dry I scrunched them up and then threaded them into a pearl brad each. I was going to enter this is two challenges today - Tuesday Throwdown #42, which is simply 'Florals', and Papercraft Star #39 which is a recipe card, but the second one has finished - when is 9.00 pm Sunday Eastern time in America in our time? I thought the USA was behind us in time...........I always miss this one! Never mind, Tuesday Throwdown it is!
ED: forgot about Crop Stop's "shiny" challenge, so will enter this in that as well! the flowers are shiny and the pearls certainly have a lovely glow!
I used papers from a mini deck from Cosmo Cricket - DeLovely - and my florishes were cut from the Sizzix dies. The card is Baja Breeze and the mounting card is Regal Rose, both from SU. I used a small pennant from WMS, and stamped it in Baja ink as I did for the sentiment which is from WMS Frame It. The ribbon is from the stash and is folded and stitched to form a bunch among the flowers. Three pearls complete the card. Bye the way, the sailors were second over the line and very happy when they came home!
