Pearls and Swirls at SFTW

"Pearls and Swirls " is the challenge at Stampin' for the Weekend.   The sponsor is the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop  Stop by the challenge to get a gander at the prize being offered and gorgeous work by the rest of the design team. 

I needed to make an anniversary card.  My friend's parents have been married for 50 years so I wanted to make a special card for them.  This stamp set is an oldie but a goldie, the design on the hearts is perfect for swirls part of the challenge.  For the swirls, there are die cut flourishes but that didn't seen dressy enough so some blingy flourishes were cut up and added here and there.  Of course there are pearls, they've been added to the corners, at the ends of some of the flourishes and at strategic spots on the hearts.

stamp - My Favorite Things "Boho Blossoms"
