Blue and Bling

I had fun with this one. I still find it hard to add a lot of embellishments. It makes it hard to use up my stuff! This card is made on white textured cardstock with pacific point and marina mist paper. I made some paper flowers as you can see.

I tried to add more pearls but it just didn't look right so I left it as is. The white card sits on the piece of pacific point background paper to make it more sturdy. It measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2".
