Pretty in Pink and Silver

 
Wasn't sure about this sketch when I first saw it, but once I decided to use this fabulous Verve wreath as the focal circle, things fell into place nicely.

I love pink and silver together as well as pink and black so the three together were a dream to work with :)   The hardest part of the card was getting something black on the pink button.  I tried twine (too thick), I tried a large half pearl (too small) I tried a cluster of black half pearls (too busy) and finally settled on some black curly cues under the button as I had run out of options and this was the best of the bunch!

Short and sweet today as I have a busy day ahead.  Off to the laundromat to wash our summer comforters in their large size machines.  Tired last week but every time I popped in someone had taken it.  So today, I'm there for opening at 8:30 so they get done and put away.

Wishing you a fabulous day!
