Here's what I'm sharing today...



Shaped cards are not usually my first choice, but I was inspired to give it at try with Nestabling Labels Twenty Five White Pearl and Labels Twenty Five Nestabilities® that it coordinates with. I die cut the label from SU! Lucky Limeade CS and also cut a smaller one from a scrap of October Afternoon patterned paper, that matched beautifully in colour.

The focal point was created by stamping the gorgeous doily design from The Craft's Meow Simply Delightful set, in Versa Magic Turquoise Gem ink, and die cutting it with Standard Circles SM. I sponged the circle lightly with an aqua ink as well.
I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Memento Nautical Blue and cut the banner. The embellishments include satin ribbon, mulberry blooms and three Coral Pearls.
I also included a small die cut flourish, from the Twisted Metal Tags and Accents.

I helped myself to the beautiful colour inspiration from The Ribbon Reel challenge #34:



I hope you like this card, I'm pretty darn satisfied with it :)
Next stop is Mimi Leinbach! Happy hopping!!
