Beautiful Things....

Good Afternoon! Hope you all enjoyed your weekend!! Today my card share is an image I collected while on my travels in BC, I believe, last summer.
I started this card a few months ago, if you can imagine!! It sat in a pile of "ufo's", as my friend Beth calls them ~ Unfinished Objects ~ !! I had the main image stamped and matted it onto the Old Olive, but the card just lacked something for me, so I set it aside.
Today while cleaning the stamp studio I looked at it and decided it needed some Dazzling Diamonds, a couple of flowers with brads and more matting. I matted it onto the Bashful Blue Designer Paper, then the black, and then onto a larger card, giving it the "frame" that I felt it needed to really show off the image.
Its a fairly clean lined card, yet does use some embellishments. The trend is for clean lined, quick & easy cards, but I still struggle with this concept, always wanting to add a ribbon, bow, brad or eyelet to my creation. Somehow at least one of those embellies manage to find their way onto my cards!!
I hope you like this card, I loved the colour combination, as its so calm and pretty, yet bold and striking all in one.
Have a great evening and hope your Hubby had a nice Father's Day!!! :-)
