TPV Birthday Challenge Day 5

WOOT! I am quite pleased with myself that I managed to complete a project for each of the five challenges that The Paper Variety posted for their one year blogaversary! I also completed their blog hop which was quite fun and inspirational. Happy Birthday TPV and thanks for all the fun!
The Day 5 challenge is to use your favorite embellishment. My all time fav is pearl flourishes. I will occasionally use a bling flourish but much prefer the pearls, they add such a simple elegance to any project.


I used this weeks card sketch at Twisted Sketches and have entered their challenge also:


I used a piece of Kraft paper as my base. A little left over piece of paper from my scraps which I believe is Basic Grey (correct me if I'm wrong!) The sentiment and border stamps are by Stampin' Up, Spellbinders die, and Tim Holtz Distress Inks. The pearl flourish is by want2scrap (there are two of these in the package and I picked it up for $1 at CKC Vallley Forge PA this year!)


Thanks for looking! I appreciate your comments (and followers :)!
