Roses, Roses, Roses

I'm so pleased that you stopped by today!!  I'm sharing another Napkin Fold Card, as they are so much fun to make, and so rewarding as well.  This one is much more "girly" than my first one, isn't it?  :)  I absolutely love roses and "girly," so I had to make another card and incorporate them both!  I added half pearls to the corners of the card itself and the tag on the "belly band" closure.  

This is what you see once you untie the ribbon closure.  As you can see, 3 coordinating papers are used to make this lovely card.  The edges of the base card stock are edged with a MS eyelet round the corner punch.

This photo shows the card after it's fully opened.  The inside has plenty of room to write sentiment and is embellished with a layered blue bird and a flower with leaves.  The flower has tiny blush half pearl in its center.  I would love to have used a rose, but it would have been too  tall and the card wouldn't close.  The printing underneath the blue bird says:  "Journal Des Roses."

Here's a photo of the back of the fully opened card.

The papers I used were Gypsy Chick's Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden Flower Blooms and Botanical Gardens and Graphic 45's Once Upon a Springtime Collection Fairy Folk.  All of these are gorgeous vintage papers.  Did I say I also love vintage??  LOL 

I hope you enjoyed your visit today and will return often!
