The sentiment I used is from Mark's Finest Papers. The roses are Primas, the pearl flourishes are by Zia, and then I also used a couple Spellbinders dies and some paper piercing.
I apologize for the dull photo, but I am having some photography issues., especially with certain colors, and ivory happens to be one that I just can't get sharp. New lamps may be in my future.
Now.....be sure to go check out what I expect to be an elegant gallery at the Speedy's Friends Blog post.
This is my last challenge as Crazy4Challenges hostess for the month of May. My challenge had to do with the time of the year. It is often around now that we start planning vacations or summer activities. My challenge was to base your card on a favorite vacation spot or activity. Well....anyone who knows me at all, will know that the ocean is a place of tranquility and fun for me.......from birth to now in my retirement. Some of my best days were spent on/near a beach, from Misquamicut, RI and Hampton Beach, NH as a youngster to Aruba, Maine, Japan, Myrtle Beach, and others as an adult. I have pictures of some of my fav spots on the sidebar of this blog. So......I used this fab ocean view from Innovative Stamp Creations as the focal image, added some palm leaves also from Innovative Stamp Creations and a sentiment by Cat's Life Press. A Prima rose, some rhinestones, and Mother Nature's shells finished it off. This truly represents my absolute favorite type of Paradise!!!!
When you visit the Crazy4Challenges Blog this week you are sure to see some interesting vacation spots and summer activities represented.
