The Shabby Tea Room Week #22

It's been a while since I've played at the Shabby Tea Room, but I decided to give it another try this week. The challenge was to make a project from the following photo inspiration.

I see creams, black, and silver so that's what you'll find in my card. Though a little time consuming, the card was easy. It was the photographing that was a problem. I couldn't seem to find a place to take the pic that didn't wash the card out so that you couldn't tell that the paper was cream colored. The remnants of that tropical whatever it was have been playing havoc with the weather all day so lighting ops were terrible.
I was trying to go for a very elegant sophisticated looking card. I'm really pleased with how it came out. Hope you like it too.

Paper: Recollections cardstock
Stamp: The Paper Studio
Inks+: Stazon Jet Black, Versamark Watermark Stamp Pad, Zing Clear Embossing Powder
Tools: Martha Stewart Garden Trellis border punch, EK Success Decorative Corner punch, Bow Easy
Miscellaneous: Robert Stanley Collection ribbon, pearl beads, Kaisercraft Pearls

Have a blessed day!
