I (heart) friends ...

I just want to say how much I enjoy all of you.  The comments I recieve make my day ... I appreciate each and every one.  Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to visit with me.

The ladies at The Shabby Tea Room posted the prettiest picture as our inspiration piece this week.  Isn't it lovely?  I see lots of pinks ...  but it was the touches of blue-green, the pearls, roses, and the charming little heart clasp that spoke to me.  Even the background caught my eye!  So delicate and so sweet ...

I created  this card to share with you today.  I used the neutral tones of a background paper picking up on the rose motif just like the inspiration piece.  Marina Mist cardstock served as my base.  The doily adds another layer of delicate lace.  My ribbon is Marina Mist with a Baja Breeze Big Designer Button from the Candy Cane collection.  I just love these wide striped ribbons ... I use them often. 

The heart is chipboard (On Board Mix & Match).  I painted it neutral, "antiqued" it with Sahara Sand and covered it with Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  I LOVE IT!  There's more glittery goodness at Lil Red Wagon and Delightful Sketches.  My heartfelt sentiment is stamped in Marina Mist on Very Vanilla.  Again "antiqued" with Sahara Sand  ... and embellished with a Pearl.

Thank you for stopping by ... good night.
