Just A(nother) Note...

Happy Monday to you!  This week is starting off with a light and fun note card...and believe it or not, no additional flowers except those in the digital collage on the card front!

Without a flower cluster to assemble, it seemed as though this card went together so quickly - but each time I played with adding more dimension to it with embellishments, it looked overdone - so I left it alone.

Once again, I used the dry brush technique around the punched edges, and some ink, paint, and distressing on the paper/cardstock elements...

I used a heavier coating of clear coarse glitter on the Eiffel Tower to give it the illusion of the tower sparkling with tiny adds a nice dimensional touch to the flatness of the digi collage...

A couple Hug Snug bows topped with a single large pearl are accented with a pearl wire spiral and a tiny sentiment tag...

And finally, a peek at the inside...all the edges of this card were dry brushed with white paint...inside and out, front and back...

Patterned paper:  Prima Divine collection       Edge punch:  Martha Stewart Cherish PATP   
Hug Snug seam binding       Large pearl:  Recollections       Lace:
Leaves:  My Favorite Things Royal Leaves die       Handcrafted pearl wire spiral
Digital Collage elements:   
Eiffel Tower, Eiffel Tower postmark, French labels:
Papers:  Designer Digitals: MTerasawa Color Challenge July 19 (aqua);  KPertiet Inspiring-4 (dot);
LynnG Crisp 2 (edge detail);  KHMize Measured Edges Grungy (rulers)

Thanks for stopping by for a visit...I hope your week is starting with a smile!


  1. Wonderful card, does not need anything more...

  2. Wow! Love the effect that you gave on the Eiffel tower...fabulous! Just a pretty card with lace and pearls, too!

  3. I love the touch of glitter and the dry brush painting around the frame. Beautiful use of digital images too. Kathy, this is another stunning card.
