A Little Feminine Flair...

Ugh...did someone actually order all of this rain?  Yikes!  
Not complaining though, because we all know what it could be this time of year! 

Since I have to leave the house today (in the downpour), I treated myself to a little creating time this morning early, when I couldn't sleep.  

Forced myself (yep, totally forced) to get the Flourishes stamps back out, and create a card for their Feminine Flair Challenge.  

Supplies: CS: DCWV, DP: Authentique's Gathering, Lace: from my stash, Pearls: Kaiser Craft, Copic Markers


What fun!  (I don't do full-out lace very often...)
And, oh my...my supplies of pearls are nearly non-existent!  
The lace came with pearls on it, so I had to try to match it for the focal piece.  
Out came my Copics, as white pearls is about the only color I have left... 
(Just one of the 'joys' of living a long ways from someplace to shop!)
 I think they actually matched up pretty good.  What would we do without our markers? 
I still use colored pencils a lot, but couldn't color pearls with them :)

I'm on my way to see what you have created today!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!

Blessings,
Patti J.
