Thank You Becca

Today I have a special Thank You to Becca for the lovely Girl’s Paperie papers she sent me.

These papers are so pretty I didn’t want to make that first cut but what good are they just sitting there. I found this little piece of pleated lace and thought it went beautifully with these papers. I aged a half doily then layered on a feather a leafy branch and my crochet flower. 

I was having a sleepless night so I watched several YouTube videos on how to crochet flowers. Somehow I came up with something of my own. I have no idea what I did but I like it. I’d never made stick pins before but somehow this card called for them. I didn’t have any floral corsage pins so I used some quilting pins. Lot less intimidating too.  The beads came off a Dollar Tree Eyeglasses Cord. The sentiment is an old Stampin’ Up stamp. I finished with a velum MS Butterfly which I sponged with some gold ink and some pearls from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by I appreciate every comment.
Have an Amazing Day
