Let's see Pearls @ Sweet Stamps!

Happy Monday everyone!

I'm here today to share another Guest Designer card for Sweet Stamps!

The challenge this week is Pearls
My card features the fabulous Margery image and Old Fashioned Wish sentiment! It's stamped with Memento Black ink and colored with Copics, the papers are from MME & American Crafts. The flower was cut out of an old dictionary using the flowers creations three nesties and I used a MFT die for the flourish. The edges have been distressed with Vintage Photo ink... the lace & pearls are from my stash. 

This card was so fun to make and I really like how it turned out! With the vintage touches- it's going to be a perfect birthday card for my wonderful mother-in-law
next month!
