Flowers and Pearls

Every girl loves flowers and pearls, or at least that's been my experience!  I have created this card with one of my favorite images from Designed 2 Delight.  They are looking for a guest designer, and I'd love to work with them if ever given the chance! Hope they like my work.  If entered my card HERE.
For this card I coloured part of the image and then paper pieced the vase  with an added "ribbon" with pearls.  The flower center is popped up to add some depth to the petals that I coloured in a random way since flowers in real life are rarely perfect.  I think it adds to their charm! I inked the image edge and layered it on some slightly distressed paper then matted it to some cardstock.  This I cut out with a pair of decorative scissors and added the pearls for a delicate touch.  I placed this atop some lovely papers from my stash and in the center I added a border using my EK Success border punch.  To finish it off I added pearls to the corners and a wonderful sentiment from Paper Smooches.
Thank you for dropping by! Hugs.
