Blooms and wee pearls are two of my favorite things...lalalalala

Happy Tuesday everyone!! I hope you week is going well and that you have as much sunshine as we have...if not, I will be more than happy to share!!! Today is not my day to post.....but I thought I would sneak right in with a little card I made using some of the SUMMER MIXED BLOOMS or PETALS from Wild Orchid Crafts. I don't use these blooms often but when I do, I just LOVE the looks of them!!! I find that I can have just as much dimension with them.

These beautiful mulberry paper blooms, also known as petals, come in a pack of 100. They are in mixed sizes and shapes (2cm - 5cm), and they are perfect for embellishing all cardmaking and scrapbooking projects. I have used the MIXED PINK/WHITE TONE BLOOM SET and by using the various shades of pinks I was able to match the DP so closely!!!! To get the added dimension, I first put the flowers together with silver floral brads which made the flowers curl...and then I used some Helmar 3-Dimensional Scrap Dots (which is like a silicon gel) to adhere the flowers to the card.

I also have to rave a bit about the absolutely magnificent Self-Adhesive Pearls and Rhinestones available over at WOC. I usually have my cards dripping with pearls but for this card I just had to use a couple of the 3mm White Pearls for the buttons on Milly's dress!! AND these pearls are now discounted to an AMAZINGLY LOW price so jump over and check them out before they are all gone!!!!

Well, I guess I have sneaked in long enough...so enjoy your day and drop back by here often to see some magnificent ideas and get fully inspired by the beautiful products available at WOC! Hugs from Jacque!!
