Modern Chic Card

Howdy!  I forgot to post this greeting card over the weekend.  {frown}  And the challenge has already closed.  Oh well.  I need to get a bit more organized.  But I still want to share it with you! {smile}

and a different view

I couldn't really decide which angle I liked best.  So, I'm sharing both with you!  This card is a bit 'flat' for my usual style, but I just thing it's perfect!
Recipe:  The card base is pink pirouette card stock, by Stampin' Up!  I just love this shade of soft pretty pink.  
The black and cream layer is a pattern paper from Stampin' Up! Timeless Elegance DSP.   I did add some gold stamping to this pattern paper.  I used a retired splatter stamp, randomly.
The pink polka dot pattern paper is a scrap piece I had left over from an earlier project.  So I don't remember who makes it.  I matted this pattern paper with gold foil card stock by Stampin' Up! as well.  
Next, I added a scrap piece of Birthday Bouquet DSP, by Stampin' Up!  Isn't this floral pattern paper just gorgeous!  I love it!  It is matted with basic black card stock, by Stampin' Up!  I added a simple border stitch with my sewing machine.  It holds all the layers together.  {smile}

Then, I added layers of embellishments!  First I added a piece of gold and white striped washi tape from Stampin' Up!.  A scrap piece of pink sheer ribbon, a piece of cotton eyelet trim, and a scrap piece of pleated tulle.  
I stamped the 'washi' tape in blushing bride classic ink, using another stamp set by Stampin' Up!  I stamped the sentiment from teeny tiny wishes stamp set, in basic black classic ink and fussy cut it out.  I stapled the sentiment right on top of the trim collection.  I used a gold sharpie to color the staples.  And Viola!
Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you have been inspired to create something pretty, even if it's just for yourself! {smile}
