Bling and/ or Pearls @ Storyteller

Good Morning
on this beautiful First Sunday in August

It’s time for a new challenge over at
The Challenge Theme for this one is
Bling and/ or Pearls

I love both Bling and Pearls, and hope you do too.
I started by colouring my image and found the things I’d use to make and decorate the card:
Materials used for the card:
Image: Saturated Canary
Cardstock: Bazzill
DPs: Melissa Frances
Colouring: ProMarkers

Ink: Adirondack Earthtones Espresso, DistressInk WalnutStain
Roses, Leaves and Brads: Storyteller
Halfpearls and Bling: Papirdesign
Stamptext (Inside): Storyteller
Dies: Spellbinders, Magnolia, My Favorite Thing
Punches: Martha Stewart Vintage Floral PATP-sett, Marvy Uchida corner rounder
Glimmermist (Tattered Rose), Glitterstickles (Crystal, Diamond),  Frantage Aged Rose, Seambindingribbon, Twine, Lace, Button and Homemade Pin.

* I started cutting, punching and tried to place the different parts to see how they worked together, but couldn’t find how I really wanted the card to look like… After moving the pieces around for some time, and trying different embellishmens around, I found I needed I little coffee - and some chocolate.
That helped, a little while later I had it all figured out…

Here’s how the card turned out:

Thought I’d put on a few rhinestones around the stamped greeting inside, but got a little carried away…

The greeting inside is made with a stamptext from one of Storytellers brand new stampsets.
This set has greetings for most any occasions; Wedding, Birthday, Baby, Confirmation, Christmas gifttag (To - From) - A perfect stampset to start with, or if you need to bring with you stamps to meetings or on a travel… I really like this set!

The image, from Saturated Canary:
