Do Not Worry

Happy Monday everyone! Yesterday, the Vintage Card Cafe posted another challenge continuing with their theme of the color spectrum....ROYGBIV...and we're now on violet/purple. This seemed like a great time to pull out my Maja Design's Vintage Spring Basics papers and make a little girly/frilly/pearly card:

The bottom border was made with a corner punch...this one is from our very own blogger-hater Martha Stewart. This one is called Double Arches. I made three punches and then added a pearl to the centers. Then I adhered a strip of lace, a strip of pearls and a polka dot organdy ribbon. I attached two violets the the center of the bow, along with a small twine bow. The sentiment panel was made with Spellbinder's Detailed Scallops die cuts...this shape was pretty long, so I cut it in half, removed a middle section, reglued the panels back together and added a striped panel in the middle to cover any seams. I then stamped my sentiment from Verve's Each Day set...from their latest release.

Have a fantastic day!

    Très jolie carte qui n'a pas besoin d'être traduite, heureusement.
