MFW: Beads & Baubles

Supplies: Papers from Basic Grey "Out of Print;"
Martha Stewart branch punch;
letter stickers all from Basic Grey;
Sakura Clear Glaze pen (on yellow letters);
blue, pink, and white pearls from $store;
standard circle Nesties; quilling by me

I had a custom card order last week that seemed a perfect fit for this edition of Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger: Beads & Baubles, which ends on November 13. Check out this Trigger photo:

I was particularly inspired by the colours & layout, and the pearls made a perfect accent. The yellow flower gave me the push to use yellow letters for the recipient's name, and I added Clear Glaze pen (two layers) to give them some jewel shine. I included gold by punching the branches from some handmade gold paper that's been in my stash for a really long time. 

Here's a close-up of the flower arrangement, and the shine of the letters:

So far this week I've made 22 cards - and usually Friday is my most productive day, and it'll be a Christmas card blitz, so I can hardly wait! And since Sunday is my birthday, I bet I could play with paper most of the day then too...just picture me rubbing my hot little hands together with glee :)

Wowzy! This is so beautiful with so many elements, Jessi! I'm sure that person will be super happy with this order!

Weather has improved a lot today with lots of sunshines and dry but chilly!

Have a nice day!

Wow, Jessi, I sure hope you're framing this for Katie! I can only imagine how long it takes to make one of these quilled cards. The details are beautiful!

I LOVE this take on the trigger. The quilling, the colors, the pearls...they're all so fab. You're the only other person I know that uses the Sakura pens...I love to use mine, too!
