It's Not All Black and White

Lavender Wishes

I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch last night to create...the biggest mess ever seen on my stamp desk. There was Liquid Pearls everywhere. You'd think a kindergarten class had rampaged through. But, eventually, I ended up with this card. It took quite a while to get it to the "I'm happy with it" stage. The stitching and the polka dots on the brown sentiment background were the final touches that finally let me walk away.
What's In It?
Stamps~ Lavender (MFT), faux ribbon for sentiment and polka dot basics (PTI)
Paper~ PTI white, SU Haiku, amethyst and saffron prints, chocolate chip
Ink~ black memento, SU chocolate, PTI Fresh snow
Copics~ G21, YG63, G99, BV02, BV04, E30
Other~ square, scallop square and label 4 nesties, white opal liquid pearls, vintage cream satin (PTI), 1/4" punch, pearls (Mike's), dimensionals, thread, sewing machine, glue dot
