Pearl & Silver

Good evening! 

This card will be entered into the Challenges at Mod Squad, Pearl & Silver, in recognition of Lung Cancer Awareness Month, hosted by a dear friend Joyce Erb,  CAS-ual Fridays, Precious Metals, and Simon Says Wednesday,  Thinking Of You.

I used the Gina K Designs stamp sets, Fabulous Frames and Stately Flowers 8, both illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger.  The flower was embossed in silver and stamped on to Vellum, which I fussy cut out.  The border of the frame was colored with a light grey Copic Marker.  I hi-lighted the dotted lines with a Sakura Clear Star Glitter Pen.  4 large Adhesive Pearls for accent.

I must say, after making this card late yesterday, I slept fine....I mean all of that empty white space did not keep me awake!  lol  You know what a challenge a CAS card is for me.  But, I  actually like this.  Who'd a thunk?!?!
I am mailing it off to Joyce Erb's good friend, Roxanne.....if you are participating in the Mod Squad challenge perhaps you could contact Joyce and get her address as well.  Wouldn't it be so nice for Roxanne to get some Happy Mail?
Thanks so much for dropping by!
