~Shiny, Shiny, Mirrored Paper~

Ooooooh, this paper is PRETTYYYYYYY....but very difficult to photograph.

It's like trying to capture a mirror!

I wouldn't dare stamp on this shimmery copper paper.

The DP has beautiful flowers.

I didn't want to cut through it!

The DCWV floral paper looks like copper in the photo, but it's a metallic orange (the gridded paper is the same shimmery color-it's from the DCWV paper pack also).

 I was able to use my "Sizzix phrase" embossing folder I've had for a few years.

It was less than a dollar from the Sizzix online outlet.

I added paper curls (my new thing...can you tell???). ;)

Color inspiration is from the Play Date Cafe PDCC108.

The sketch is inspired by CardPatterns Sketch 143.

inspired me to embellish with pearls. 

I used a Sharpie to color some off-white pearls with the closest I had to maroon.

Thank you for stopping by today. ;)
