This week, at The Shabby Tea Room, Fran is the host and she has chosen the theme of "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" along with a beautiful photo for inspiration. Fran asks that we create a card inspired by the colors from the photo and include peals and/or crystals. Here's the card I made:
I punched a lot of these hydrangea flowers with white paper and vellum and put a silver brad in the middle of them. I put some white pearlescent paint on the brads. The base of the flower is made with a Waltzingmouse stamp from the Dainty Doilies - Large set. Then I added two different Spellbinders dies and a vellum doily. I stitched the edges with my sewing machine and also put a grey velvet ribbon with a little heart charm, a few pearls and a butterfly.
A close-up of the butterfly and of the little heart:
