The Right Accessories

Hi everyone! I have some great news... I've been asked to join the Crafty Cardmakers and More Design Team! Woot-woot! I'm super stoked to share my first DT inspiration project for CCM #123 - Ribbons/Lace and Pearls hosted by teammate Jackie! We're being sponsored by Woodware Craft Collection and Di's Digi Stamps! Come play with us! We want to see your project with ribbons or lace (or both) and pearls!

I perused my collection of Unity stamps and selected one of the most awesome Itty Bitty stamp sets for this card which would be a great encouragement or congrats card. I have a slight shoe fetish so this was perfect! I was in a pink girlie kind of mood so I created a pink card base, then dug into my stash of double-sided papers and chose some absolutely gorgeous pink floral papers. I mounted all the elements on dark chocolate cardstock which gave a great contrast to the soft pink tones.

I used some gorgeous WOC ivory crocheted lace along with some pretty pink wrinkled ribbon and pink flat-back pearls.

The inside sentiment is from the Unity April 2013 Sentiment Kit, also stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I thought it complimented the front sentiment very well.

I'd love to enter this card into the following challenges:

  • GKD Pure Luxury Ivory, Bubblegum Pink and Dark Chocolate cardstock
  • KaiserCraft Key To My Heart double-sided papers
  • Unity Right Accessories Itty Bitty stamp set
  • Sentiment from the Unity Blossom By Blossom April 2013 Sentiment Kit
  • Memento Rich Cocoa ink
  • Wild Orchid Crafts ivory crocheted lace
  • Prairie Bird Boutique wrinkled ribbon
  • Melissa Frances pink flat-back peals

Hope you've found a little inspiration to create a project with ribbons or lace (or both if you want) and some pearls! What a pretty combination! Thanks so much for stopping by today  we'll see you next time!
