Pearls for SOS.....

Hello everyone: The new challenge over at SHOPPING OUR STASH is PEARLS, love this little treasures from the sea.
This is my card that I  hope will inspire you  to come and play along.

The embossing folder is a super old one from Stampin' Up!  I don't remember the name but it's beautiful, as you can see.
I just embossed a panel of white cardstock with it and then, colored it with Picked Raspberries and Shabby Shutters distress inks.  I added the pearls to the center of the flowers.
Most times, I stamp several images and color them just to have them at hand, it saves me lots of time because I go to my box where I keep this images and, if the theme of a challenge calls for one or I need one to fill in a space, I have it ready to go. 
This image and the sentiment are from an old Flourishes set called "From the Garden".


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The border on top is from a retired SU set called "Delicate Details", the sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called Everything's Even Rosier, the little flower on the corner is from a retired SU set called "Stippled Blossoms".

I hope you stop by the SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge blog to get more inspiration from my teammates' creations and then, come and join us in the gallery.

I would like to play with the following challenges.

Dream Valley Challenges #187 "PEARLS OR GEMS"

Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge #150 "Anything Goes
An option of embossing, wet or dry.

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Beautiful card, love that folder and haven't used it for a long while. Great idea colouring images when you have time and it really helps when in a time crunch. btw lovely colouring.

I have that folder, too, and not sure of the name as it's unlabeled. Elegant Bouquet? I do love it, and it's especially pretty with the soft ink colors and pearls. Perfect with your garden image. I love the idea of having images all colored up and ready to go. I can't color fast enough to do that, but what fun it would be to have a little box full of them!
