Focus on the Sentiment


Do you ever just try and try and just cannot capture the true color in a card in a photo?  I just could not get the background behind my card to show white but the colors in the card show up the white as well ...white.  This card was made with Annabelle's Stamps Dotted Flowers and Floral Silhouette and focuses on the sentiment and uses DP for the shades of blue. Stamped and embossed some of the circles with flowers and randomly added pearls for some depth and richness. Pearls are white but look blue because of reflection of color in paper.

Annabelle Blog Challenge: Say it in... shades of blues... and white
Joanna Sheen Challenge: Totally Sentimental-focus on sentiment
Cute Card Thursday: Bling It Up...used pearls
Digi Doodle Shop's Best: Use Pearls- used lots of pearls.
