Ahhhh, Monday...

It's the start of a busy week here...with a couple fun meet-ups with friends scheduled into the mix.  I worked on a non-papercraft project this weekend, so I only have one card to share with you today. But I'll make up for it the rest of this week, I promise!  And with luck, I'll soon have some pics to share of this weekend's project, too.

Lots of die cuts were used on this birthday card - both for the base of the card, and the embellishments - so I kept the paper color and pattern simple and clean, and let the edging and decoration take center stage.

Once again, one of my favorite shabby flowers is the base for a smaller loopy ribbon circle and paper flower with pearl center...and a pretty embellished leaf stick pin...all sitting atop a loopy diecut paper doily...

I offset the airy loops of the paper doily with a loopy flourish diecut on the other side of the card...and tucked a couple handmade pearl wire circles under the side of the flowers...

And lastly, a peek at the inside...
