PPA58-Pretty in Pearls

Good Friday Morning Peeps!!! I have two cards for ya today! Both are very similar and are made with this weeks challenge on Pals Paper Arts Blog. Their challenge this week is PPA58-Pretty in Pearls, to create a clean and simple card using pearls!

As I was thinking about this challenge, a card came to mind, I had made a similar card to this one with a friend last year, in reverse, I think. The red was white embossed with red pearls in the center and a stamped red message. So I decided to re-create this one with the challenge to use pearls. I embossed the real red card stock with the Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder. I made two cards one with the bouquet from the top and one with it coming up from the bottom. I used the new, from the Holiday Mini, extra large Decorative Label Punch. The sentiment is different on each card, one is from the Grateful Greetings and the other is from Snow Swirled.

I love that SU now has sticky back half pearls!! Love them!!! So which do like best?

Both are clean and simple and both would be a fast and easy and very mailable card, no extra postage needed for these.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
