Faux Silk

Completed my jury duty (a few hours at the courthouse, but not chosen), new job doesn't start for a couple weeks & the computer is back (not sure it's any faster--oh well!) so life is back to normal & I can catch up on everyone's blogs & post my entry for ODBD Shining The Light "here".  The challenge is to have silk or faux silk on your card.  Angie's faux silk tutorial is great & since I also had a piece of beautiful printed tissue paper waiting for the right project, I was set.  I stamped the saying from the ODBD Little Things set onto a piece of gorgeous white shimmery paper that has a pattern.  The dies are Spellbinders & the border punch is Martha Stewart (I punched both sides of the cardstock strip, leaving space for the trim.) The border & the circles are attached with foam tape.  I like combining pearls & gems & thought they worked well for this card.  The final touch was tying on white silk ribbon & adding the stick pins.  Thanks for stopping by--your comments are always appreciated!
