Pearls and Lace


Welcome to a new week in another new month.  The year is disappearing so quickly, it will be time to make Christmas cards again soon (sorry for that reminder!).  Sunday is Mother's Day and I have made this card for my Mum, who is a pearls and lace kind of lady. 

I have kept the design really simple, given the bold embellishments I have used. The DSP is the lovely Springtime Vintage that was available in the US in their last mini.  I've matched it with Rich Razzleberry to give it some 'pop' and lovely lace that I've had for ages (lace being top of mind after 'that' wedding). I made another of the gorgeous Joanne Leddy cardstock flowers in textured Very Vanilla, as the centrepiece.  This time I used a 5/16" brad and a larger flower punch for the centre which is a good platform for the large flat back pearl in the centre.

Here is a close-up of the flower.  I think the textured cardstock adds something as well.
