Beautiful Day

I made a card for The Shabby Tea Room's Color Me Pretty Challenge.  We were supposed to use pink, blue, white/cream, flowers, and a fabric element such as ribbon.  I also combined this challenge with the Oldie But Goodie Challenge which is Anything Goes.

Here's the pretty inspiration photo from TSTR.  What a lovely setting!

For my card, I went with soft blue and pink with cream, a flower, and a wired blue ribbon as the fabric element.  I'd tossed that bow aside when making a different project, and it was just perfect for today.

To make the scalloped border, I used a MS straight border punch and cut apart the repeats.  I covered the seams with the little pearls. 

Here's a closeup of the bow and flower.

Stamps:  Verve "Beautiful Kindness"
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
Papers:  cream, dps from K & Co. Brenda Walton "Small Wonders Girl"
Other:  Recollections flower, organdy wired ribbon from stash, Bow Easy, MS vintage floral border punch, Recollections pearls

Thanks for stopping by!
