Live and Love Crafts Pins and Pearls

Ok here is a card that challenged me!  This week at LLC pins and pearls were our inspiration.  That's not the part that challenged me.  I made the card for a friend and grad colors were gold, yellow and black.  THAT was the challenge!!  Not a super vintagey card (I'm sure that's not a word but it works for me - lol) but I've used lots of supplies from Live and Love Crafts.  I started out with some older papers from Maja Design's "Crea Diem" collection.  Very pretty!

My pins are all in my bouquet.  3 of them are pearl pins new to LLC and my 4th pin is holding my tiny "2012" tag.  A little hard to see because it has reflections on it.  Oooops hee hee.  Love the blackberries and all those extra flowers to which I added a touch of Gesso.  I also looped a few rounds of black pearls from LLC under my Prima flower I had in my stash.

AND I found a big gold tassel hidden in my stash too and who would have figured that years later it would have come in handy?!  And I tell myself I should purge my crafting supplies!!  What am I thinking?  LOL!!  The feather and ink well are Tim Holtz dies which I added some crackle paint to.
The image is called "Grad Girl 2012" from Saturated Canary and colored with my Copics. 

One last picture!!  How can I NOT show you these gorgeous laces?!!  So pretty with the rhinestones on there!

Before I take off I want to let you know these papers are now available at LLC:

Well that's all I have to share today!!  I hope you have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

OMG! I am in awe! How do you keep turning out such BEAUTIFUL cards Eulanda? Every time I see your latest creation I think to myself, she'll never be able to keep this up, but yet again, you've created something absolutely FANTASTIC!

Oh, and by the way, I'm sure the papers are fabulous, if you could see them, lol.



PS What size cards are you making these days? I only ask because I can't believe that you can fit all this stuff onto a 6 x 6?
