Starting with the lightest shade of Hero Arts pool layering papers (shallows), I white embossed this old Hero Arts Lace Background stamp . Then I die-cut a Die-Namics Oval Decorative Doily from an ivory cardstock, stamped my sentiment from Flourishes Picking Wildflowers in soft pool ink, and added the smallest ivory/cream buttons I could find in my stash. The lovely ceramic flower is the perfect color - it was given to me almost a year ago by my friend Marcy, and I've been hoarding it ever since. Thank you, my friend! Back when I was a teen, a beautiful pin would have been worn right at the top of this blouse, between the collars.
The rest of my week right up to the due date for entries to this Trigger, is booked, so I had to post this NOW! Thank you, Cath, for a beautiful inspiration!
Being my literal self again, this one uses white cardstock and a Core'dinations one, along with some vellum, which I embossed in the Victoria folder. The sentiment half-circle is made with an old Fiskars Circle Border punch called Heart of Hearts. My sentiment is from Hero Arts Beautiful Peacocks. And this time I could use tiny pearl "buttons" on my organza ribbon placket.
