The Ribbon Reel #55 - Happy Birthday


{This is my second post of the day, if you are looking for the DeNami Designs Patterned Paper Blog Hop click here)

Hard to believe it's time for another challenge at The Ribbon Reel already! Zuzana is our host and she has asked that we create a card with pearls, plus ribbon, lace and twine. The Pearls can be adhesive, brads, pins...whatever your heart desires as long as you show us your treasured pearls.

Here is what I created today.
The Supplies from The Ribbon Reel used:
I started with a white card base next adding my white lattice rectangle cut.  I added some patterned paper from Pink Paislee Bayberry cottage collection to the center. I stamped DeNami Designs Decorative Crest Circle with Peeled Paint distress ink onto my green cardstock. I added three beautiful rose buds to the center embellishing with some pearls from my stash. I die-cut a fancy flourish adding to the top of my Decorative Crest. 

I tied a double Mauve Mesh bow which I further embellished with an Ivory Button Twine double bow, vintage pearl button and a sentiment tag stamped using DeNami Designs Thoughtful Greeting Set. I just love how perfect these little sentiments are for tags. :-) A final finishing touch was adding some crochet trim across the top. 

Here is the new inspiration photo to kick start your mojo.
Please head over to The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog to see what the other talented ladies have created for you.  We hope you join us in the gallery over the next two weeks for your chance to win some Ribbon Reel goodness. 

Have a good evening!

Oh.. so adorable Tammy..

Can't believe that you've used pearls, twine, ribbon, and lace and the card still doesn't look even a wee bit over embellished.

Love the colors, and th ewhole feel of the card.

Wish I could do shabby chic like you
