CASE Study #40

I haven't been able to play at CASE Study lately, but I'm sneaking this one in at the last minute, because I loved the example.  I'm also entering this card into The Ribbon Reel "Shabby Strawberries and Cream" challenge.



supplies: pink and parchment cardstock, Paper Studio music paper, K&Company Floral Embossed Vellum as an overlay, Hobby Lobby lace, pink embroidered ribbon, silk flower, ribbon flower from Mary Anne, Martha Stewart paper rose, Hero Arts CL181 SparkleClear Messages, versafine onyx black ink, punched tag, Kaiser pink pearls


I overlaid a music dp with a piece of embossed vellum.  My flower is layered using part of a silk flower as the base, then a ribbon flower that my friend Mary Anne gave me this weekend (they come sewed onto a strip of netting, which you then trim out).  The final layer is a Martha Stewart paper rose.  I've had this pretty embroidered ribbon forever; have no idea where it came from.  I added a few pink pearls along the embossed flourish.
