Hey, y’all – welcome back. Glad that you could stop by on this Wednesday – Hawp Day! I have a confession to make to you. Yesterday I told you that I pretty much never run out of Pearl Basic Jewels. That was sort of a fib. I didn’t realize it was a fib until I went to make today’s card. When I got to the point where I needed to find my flower centers – they were pretty much begging to have Pearls in them! – I realized just how dire my circumstances had become.
Oh, I knew my supply was low – especially in the area of the tiniest of the pearls in a pack. I have none of those left. Nary a one! I have a smattering of medium sized ones and hooked-together straight strip ones. And tons of giant ones – cuz of how I seldom use that size.
So Monday – when I ordered the fringe scissors – when they were on sale – I grabbed a couple of Pearl Basic Jewel packs. Yes, of course I did, since they went on sale the very next day! 🙁 Not to say I won’t put in another order – I need those teeny tiny seed pearls! But, I hate missing a sale. I mean – I’m perfectly willing to spend $20 on pearl packs just cuz I can save $1.25 a pack. Aren’t you? 😉
Anywho – I decided to use the large pearls on this card – I hope they don’t look too awfully clunky to you! I used one of the new Annual Catalog DSPs – well, it was new last summer, anyway! – the Bohemian DSP. And I combined it with some flowers from the Botanical Builder Framelits and a greeting from the Greetings Thinlits. Take a look-see:
