Simple Pleasures

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing a card that seems to be out of my color comfort zone. Most of you know that I love working with pinks, and of course, red and purple. However when I saw the weekly color challenge at  
The Shabby Tea Room, I was inspired to search for aqua and yellow papers.
My card measures 5" x 7" cut from white cardstock. Patterned papers are from paper pads that I have had for quite some time.
Cricut Cartridge
Country Life - Page 60 - Pitcher is cut 3". Pitcher is pop-dotted on the yellow mat. Phrase is cut 1.25"
Spellbinders - Nestabilities Eyelet Circles on the yellow dot paper
Martha Stewart Daisy Dot Edge Punch is used on the white layer.
Sew Easy Fancy floss - Baker's twine primary
Crinkle Ribbon from Karen at Little Scrap Pieces
Pearls and buttons from my stash and lots of inking complete the look.

The Shabby Tea Room - Ch. 169 Shabby Sunshine using aqua, yellow, and white/cream and include twine
