Give Me Ribbon Pearls & Glitter..Anyday

Hello Everyone...
Emblishments:   Ribbon, Pearls & Martha Stewart - Glitter Pen color-brownstone
Paper: Graphic 45 & DCWV
Image from: Graphic 45- A Ladies Dairy Collection
I love wearing pearls..and even better that it is my birthstone so putting them on a card is a treat. Its just one of those things I don't think of doing often, go figure. So when I ran into a card challenge the lighbulb turned on...what can I say. I have been going over and organizing my collection of papers and wanting to use and show them off that I forgot about all my pretty glitters and bling. Thank God for challenges to bring out & use the goodies we have on hand and don't use unless challenged. Just like our character, God has a way of  polishing, shining and even chipping stuff off we picked up on our life journey.  He wants to develope us with all his goodness, encourage us, make us shine so we can share in fellowship as we Praise Him.
The Diva

 I went to Hobby Lobby the other day and found this beautiful turquoise ribbon. I love the texture it gives and the lovely frilly look it gave my card. I should have bought more than one color. At least now I know to use their 40% coupon for my next trip on another color.
I am entering this card in:
Crazy Catz Weekly Challenge -3 Embellishments, 2 Paper's  and 1 Image
Through the Craftroom Door Challenge - Diva or Anything goes(I chose Diva)
 Well, I must say I really love this card..think I am going to figure out how to frame it in a shadow box style.
Hope you enjoyed and leave a comment. Until next time..this Frugal Grannie is out.
