Tiffany *Day 4*

I have another elegant card by Tiffany to share today:
There are so many beautiful details on this card. First of all, I love the monochromatic color scheme! The intricate punch and beautiful bow add such an elegant touch. And speaking of details, aren't those pearls just perfect?! I would have never thought to use them with this image, but they work so well. Finally, Tiffany has picked out the perfect sentiment-both in meaning and style!

Here is my take. While the colors on my card are very different than Tif's, I found my inspiration in her overall card design/layout--a center panel, punched on the bottom, and a sentiment below. And I have SUPER FUN announcement today. I have been asked to be a Hero Arts Hostess!! I just love the Hero Arts community, so needless to say I am honored to be a hostess. You can stop by the HERO ARTS BLOG to see a new card of mine and short Q & A. Thanks again for all of your support and encouragement--it means SOO much to me.
Supplies---Stamps: Silhouette Grass (Hero Arts S5316), Sentiment (Hero Arts CL342); Ink: Distress Ink (Tim Holtz), Memories Dye Ink in Chestnut; Other: Pearls (Recollections), Scallop Punch (Fiskars), Corner Rounder (EK Success), Ribbon (Berwick Offray, LLC.), Perfect Pearls mixed with water and misted using a mini mister (Ranger), Misc. Cardstock, Dimensional Adhesive (All Night Media)
