Etsy Challenge #20

It's time for the weekly Art Inspiring Art Etsy Challenge!!! This week's store is Zeba...beautiful jewelry from casual to elegant. I picked this piece as my inspiration. I wanted to show you the card with and without the added necklace. I loved the swirl of the necklace with the pearls. So, I whipped out my D'vine Swirl embossing folder and half pearls and got to work.
The necklace charm was just a blank metal circle. I stamped on it using Staz-On black and colored it using Prismacolor markers. The quote is stamped on the backside so it's reversible.
Stamps: "Dreams do Jour" by Stampin' Up!, "A Year of Flowers" by Melanie Muenchinger for Gina K. Designs
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Staz-On Black
Paper: Silver Metallic, Whisper White, Basic Black
Accessories: Necklace charm from Joann's, self adhesive pearls, "D'Vine Swirl" Cuttlebug folder

That is a Gorgeous card. I love the way you cut the white & silver paper in the swirl design to add to the whole flow of the card. And the necklace idea is so fun.
