Fabulous Coral Florets

       I can't believe I did it, I had to sit there & force myself to do it but I did do it.Yep you guessed it I finally made a card, mark this day down in your calendars just in case it doesn't come around again for a long time. LOL!
       The card I made today showcases one of the new in-colors, I'm not a big coral color person but thought I would give it a try. I also used the sketch PP53 from The Paper Players to give me a little boost. I wasn't 100% sure I liked this card when I first started on it, then I added a little something here & there & it is starting to grow on me.


All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.
Stamps: Fabulous Florets, French Filigree
Paper: Whisper White, Calypso Coral
Ink: Craft White, Calypso Coral
Other: White Embossing Powder, Sponges, Basic Pearls, Crystal Effect
Technique: Sponging (flowers) & wet embossing
FYI- the pearls were colored by a Sharpie pen!
