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!
