I always like to take a set of beautifully feminine papers and see if I can make a manly card from them. Marion Smith put just enough neutrals in this collection to do just that. Even with the hint of pink on this chipboard piece, I think it still says masculine.
I piled on the chipboard... five pieces total. I was really trying to reduce my stash here, plus add a lot of layers since I knew I couldn't use my flowers and Spanish moss. I squeezed on some gold Liquid Pearls to brighten things up a bit, and tied on a few wraps of May Arts natural burlap string.
The book paper heart was a gift from The Funkie Junkie Boutique. I can truly say I use all these little bits and bobs that Linda packages so prettily and adds in with my orders.
The metal filigree is also from Linda's store.
We have had an amazing amount of rain in our neck of the woods... nearly everyday for about three weeks now. Thankfully there have been times of sunshine to offset the cloudy skies, but still it would be nice for a few days of dry weather. We are getting a garden full of flowers though... one compensation.
Thank you for stopping by!
