Postcard from Abroad!

I'm up on the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog today with this week's inspiration. We are playing with ribbon, lace and pearls along with the colors green and cream this month.  No problem there for me!

"Happiness"

The card is made from cream cardstock.  I used a border punch along the lower front edge and adhered a strip of green cardstock to the inside of the card so that it would show through the border design.  I matted the postcard with the same green cardstock.  The doily, cut from coral cardstock,  is one of my favorite die-cuts.  I cut it apart and tucked it in behind the postcard in several places and embellished it with tiny pearls.  The sentiment and Eiffel Tower die-cut finish off the postcard.

The bouquet consists of many layers of ribbon, lace and flowers.  The bottom layer is a multi loop bow adhered around the corner of the postcard. Bows are always easy when I use my Craft-Dee BowZ Bow Making Tool!  On top of the bow is a rosette base that I made using the wide green lace that was part of our product this month.  Beautiful!  Next, I used the textured layer of a green flower as foliage and adhered some coral roses and a white carnation for the bouquet.  I tucked in some beaded stems and glued a few pearls among the flowers.
