Ending the Week...

Happy Friday, everyone!

Today's post is short and sweet, with a shabby all-occasion card in soft blue-grey and coral.  Once again, I've intentionally left off the sentiment...when it's time to send it out, I plan to use an embellished Tim Holtz memo pin to hold a small sentiment tag.

To add some dimension to the dusty teal cardstock flourish, and make it show up a bit more against the patterned paper, I cut a second flourish in dark brown, and glued the teal piece to the brown one, offsetting it just a little bit...

There's a small piece of dyed paper doily scrunched up beneath the tea-dyed cheesecloth...

Inside the torn paper at the top sits a small pearl flower...

Patterned papers:   Prima Nature's Garden collection
Dies:  Sizzix Flowers Branches & Leaves;   Memory Box Elegant Scrollwork  
Lace:   Venus ribbon          Pearl trim:   SuhaFuha on Etsy          Pearl flower:   Prima
Loose pearls:   Recollections          Miscellaneous:   tea-dyed cheesecloth

Thanks so much for visiting today...have a wonderful weekend!
