We were to pull out some items that we have a tenancy to hoard for various reasons:
In my case it was pearls, choc satin ribbon, and these little satin rosebuds with pearls in the center.
For the color challenge I used Baroque Motifs to lightly add a touch of Sage Shadow flourish to my BGP.
The main Image is from Crafty Secrets "Friendship" Vintage Cuts which I used the postage decorative scissors to cut. Just for an added vintage sparkle I placed a line of sticky strip along the bottom with silvery-vanilla seed beads on top. A little lilac prima was used in the ribbon treatment to pull out the lilacs in the image. Hope you enjoy it!

PammyJo ... this is OMG Gorgeous!!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE everything about this card! The bg is beautiful and using the postage stamp border around your sentiment really makes it *pop*! The pearls are such a sweet, vintage touch. And of course that BEAUTIFUL chocolate satin ribbon, I have to admit I'm a hoarder on this one too!!! For me, it's actually *painful* to cut into that luscious ribbon! So glad to see that the drugs are working for your allergies and you feel better today! Thanks for coming out to play!!! GORGEOUS card!!!

I wish I had hoarded my ribbon more. I am almost out. The seed beads along the bottom are the absolute BEST. I love this little poem. WOW have not seen that before. A new favorite. Really terrific card..TFS
