Teal and White ...

Hi Everybody,

This very striking card uses teal,  white and black for added drama.

I have layered it all up with foam pads and wrapped the ribbon around them all.

The bow has a diamante centre and through the knot I have added in a matching hatpin that can be removed as a small gift.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and they have the fine glitter to add sparkle from Glitter Magic

The sentiment is from Crafters Companion

This is a Hatpin I made a while ago.

I am still waiting for my silver from China ... but I promise to show you the goodies when they get here.

The background is the Tapestry Pattern and once again the card is much prettier in real life.

The pearly "Bling" that matches the label is from Want2Scrap

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  3. Morning Christine,
    Not sure about the black on this one, to me it's a bit too dominant, that's just me though, it would be dull old world if we all liked the same things.

  4. I would have gone for a darker blue instead of black...but it is very striking. The hatpin and flower arrangement really set it off.
