Too Many Pearls


I guess this is a similar layout to yesterday's card but a totally different, this was the card I made for the blue and green challenge and then realised that there was no way it was going to work for LIM.
The embossing folder is from a company called Lifestyle who I believe was Quickutz but don't hold me to that, the folder is called Whimsy and it comes in a pack of two. It has a dot on each corner that meets up and it cried out for pearls. 
I grabbed a blue bit of paper which I think is from Memory box and then the green card is from Stampin Up. The swirl is MFT and the flowers are EK Success punches and border Martha Stewart Cherish.
Well I've had a couple of pants days and my scrapbooking weekend I made one layout so much for finish Lou's wedding album and yesterday I didn't fancy cardmaking at all so rather than fight it I did some cross stitch instead.

  23. I think LIM is what you make it, Debby. If white space determines LIM, there is certainly alot of it on this gorgeous card. It is quite minimal and beautifully balanced too. There isn't a lot of fussy stamping or loads of asymetric layers or bits and pieces hanging over the edges. I think it's perfectly LIM and I think it's perfectly STUNNING! Hugs, Lesley

  34. CAS is so underrated...this is so elegant that given the right papers it could be designed into a wedding invitation, especially with the pearls!
    I must find that folder, and you are correct Debby Quikutz is now Lifestyle. It's funny how you look at a folder on the shelf in the store and think nah...then you see it used like this and your like oh my gosh I've got to have it!!
    Love it Debby, and the little birdhouses too :)S

  57. I enjoy you because of your own labor on this web site. My mum really likes managing internet research and it's really easy to see why. We hear all regarding the compelling way you present good tips by means of this blog and as well as strongly encourage participation from some others about this concept then my princess is actually learning a whole lot. Enjoy the remaining portion of the new year. You are carrying out a great job.
