Say It With ..... Teardrop Pearls!

This week's challenge over on the AnnaBelle Stamps blog is to use teardrop pearls on your project. Oh my - it took me a week of thinking and then a night of throwing out heaps of ideas until I came up with this simple, but hopefully effective card.

I used Kraft for my base and then added a layer of some retired DP. I then used one of my new fave sets -Daisy Delight to stamp my flowers in Baja Breeze and Riding Hood Red ink. I hand drew my stems joining the flowers to create a bouquet. A lightbulb moment, led me to using my teardrop pearls as petals for my stems. I love the way this turned out! The sentiment is from the new Acacia set stamped in Old Olive ink.
On the inside I kept my card simple as well, stamping another sentiment from Acacia and adding one more flower with stem and teardrop pearls.
