It's time for another challenge over at As You Like It and this fortnight's theme is to showcase a project with your favourite of either pearls or gems (and don't forget to say why they are your favourite please).
I do like both, but tend to favour pearls a lot more. I think they finish a card off and look more elegant, particularly for special occasion cards.
This is a wedding card for my niece made with a LOTV sentiment. The colour theme of the wedding is supposed to be a secret, but I've heard on the grapevine I'd be safe with silver and pink, so let's hope so! I've used a spellbinders die for the mat and silver paper from First Edition, silver sheen card and added embellishments of flowers, pink and green leaves, lace, pearls, a metal corner and because I didn't like the empty space on the right hand side, I added 2 small metal hearts.
One of the flowers is my first attempt at a rolled rose. I made it in coloured vellum and added a pearl to the centre. I really like the look of them in a bunch of flowers.
If you'd like to pop over to the challenge here, you'll be able to see the lovely creations from the rest of the design team.
