A Card - In Brown and White

Happy Friday to all of you, my friends!
I have another new card for you today. It's another one all in shades of brown and white! The sun was shining today, so the shades are very different than the last one! The image is a Whiff of Joy stamp that I won in my friend Katharina's blog giveaway a little while ago. I colored it up with my Prismacolour pencils and odorless mineral spirits. Other than the brown pearls, all the other materials for this card came from the October Simon Says Stamp Card Kit. The chevron circle in the center is actually a coaster that came in the kit. I ruffled the white ribbon around the edge of it, and then tied the last bit into a double bow. I fussy cut strips of a brown chevron paper and placed that around the outside edge of the card. It took a little bit of fiddling to miter the corners but I think it worked out very nicely. I punched the flowers out and layered them up. I also applied some stickles to them...oh, that was from a previous card kit. I stamped the sentiment and punched it out, and then finally I added all the brown pearls! There you have it! I hope you all have a fabulous day and a wonderful weekend! We've got some snow in the forecast for Sunday...wouldn't that be fun? :o)

Wow Nancy... this is a smokin card! Love the herringbone effect with your papers, great colouring and those flowers are really nice. I love the brown shades and like the total look of this card.. That's a great idea to group the pearls in corners... I must remember that.

This is totally cool! I love what you did to the outer edge of the card. All your fussing around and making the mitered corners has turned out jaw dropping!

Your colored image is just cute!

All those flowers you made are fantastic. Love this card.

Love you - Leslie

Such a gorgeous card, Nancy. Love your take on the theme 'brown and white' at WoJ Challenges. The zigg zagg around the edges gives a great effect to the paper you used in the center. Thank you so much for joining us and have a wonderful weekend!
