I did start out to use Night of Navy & Pear Pizzaz.  By the time I come to the ribbon, I realised what I had done, but by then it was too late, so I continued with it.  I quiet like like the colours together.  Do you ever do that?  I seem to do it all the time!  I did want to use more of the Pear Pizzazz Cardstock, but suddenly realised that I only had 2 small bits left to complete my card!

Envelope & Inside Card...
I run the small piece of Basic Black through the Bigshot using Embossing Folder - Vintage Wallpaper.  I repeated the same for the smaller piece of Whisper White using Embossing Folder - Perfect Polka Dots.  The embossed Basic Black was adhered to the embossed Whisper White with Tombow Glue, then to the larger piece of Basic Black before adhering to the Base Card - Whisper White.

I punched along one edge of the small piece of Pear Pizzazz using the Scallop Trim Border Punch, adhered a piece of Ribbon along the middle, tucked ends under, tied a bow & adhered to the card with Tombow Glue.

Close Up of Flower Image...
I inked my image with Pear Pizzazz Ink & for a little bit of a different look, I randomly applied my Basic Black SU! Marker to the inked image before stamping onto a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  I again stamped the image in Pear Pizzazz Ink, stamped onto the square piece of Whisper White, adhered to the square piece of Pear Pizzaz & finally to the Base Card using Tombow Glue.

I cut around the 2-coloured stamped image & adhered to the top of the stamped image using Stampin' Dimensionals.  I applied small Basic Pearls to the centres of the flowers.  I think I missed a couple, but me being me, had to fix immediately as it was annoying me!!!!!!!

Again, no sentiment.  This would be the perfect card for Mother's Day.

I really love how the flower come out & will be doing more this way.  It gives such a lovely effect to your image.

Wow Vicky, this is simply stunning. I love the way you coloured and cut this image and then added all those pearls. Absolutely gorgeous.

This is so BEAUTIFUL, Vicky! I love the dramatic look of the hydrangea, and the use of black is perfect (if unintended!). Gorgeous card!

Such a beautiful card! The pearls help with just the right detail.
