A few days ago I posted this card and quite a few people commented that they would like to see it in pastels. I tried but just couldn't get the colours to work, honest! I will keep trying and see if I can cone up with a pastel version of this filigree card.
Instead, therefore, I started back at basic black, I would call this card a Happy Accident as nothing on it was planned. I started, after cutting the Filigree base, by cutting a circle out in the centre. Next I placed a piece of silver Mirri card beneath the aperture when I noticed how nice the sliver looked showing behind the filigree edge.
Next I edged the circle with my bargain gems form the local Chino shop, these come in strips so surrounding the circle with the correct spacing was easy. Finally I added one of my bows, made with a check and an organza ribbon in black and white, and two of Wendy's hat Pins. The sentiment was easy as this card looked, to me at least, so celebratory therefore Celebrate ( perhaps that it's Friday!)
