Engagement Card


 I had a request for an engagement card.  I didn't have enough of the very small pearls to complete the card so I had to make the outer most row with slightly larger pearls.  Hopefully, they won't notice.  I need to stock up on lots of the really tiny pearls.

This is the first time I've used my Martha Stewart scoreboard.   I have made quite a few of these cards in the past, but wow did the board make it easier.  Of course, it was trial and error.  I went through six pieces of cardstock before I got it right.  I finally ended up marking the center groove with a magic marker all the way down to make alignment easier.  Now I shouldn't have any problems.

I have more info about this technique and a link to the tutorial on my June Wedding post.

I was  on someone's website the other day and I saw they had used a product called Glamour Dust by DecoArt to paint their flowers.  It doesn't show in the pictures, but the flowers have a beautiful sparkle. 

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge Use A Lot
Card Makin' Mamas Pink
