Change of direction

A warm hello to all my visitors.

I made this card a week or so ago, and I don't remember what the original recipe was that I was working to, but I do know what I made was totally different and was not 'eligible' for the challenge I had in mind when I started!

I guess a few of you would identify with that?

This is the result

I started by running an embossed line approximately 8mm inside  the edge of the card.
I then stamped the the Layers of Color greeting from the Happy Wishes clear stamp set, and the large flourish from the Stampin' Up Baroque Motifs set in Tsudineko Pearlescent Lavender ink.

I then tried stamping the large motif in red Staz On ink on acetate to layer over it, but lets just say it did not work.....

So I did a fast re-think, and added the ribbon and pearls and called it quits - since then the card has grown on me and I am quite happy with it now.

I am linking this to:

Thanks for calling by - I really appreciate your visits, and comments when you leave them.
May your day be blessed.

Teehee. I can totally relate my dear. The last 2 weeks I made my guest DT projects for Tuesday Throwdown knowing I need to use specific images, but forgot about the challenge part, so at the last minute, I was having to work that in! Ha! Lovely card my dear an the pearls are just perfect.

I have been wondering how your friend Donna and the baby are doing??
