I'm still can't get over how much I love this card. Isn't it just so stunning and soooo beautiful?! And it's so simple! I have to say that this was not my original idea, though I'd love for it to be :) I copied almost exactly from Connie Collins card. Connie is one of this years Artisan Award winners. I've been following her blog for a while and I love her work. Make sure you check out her blog after your stop here. You won't be disappointed!
I wanted to keep my card like Connie's, her's was already beautiful, why change it? I did use a couple more layers of cardstock. I often find it challenging not to use multiple layers. Plus I don't like to have ribbon through the inside of the card. It's ok if others want to do it, and I will never stop you. But when I make a card, I really don't like the ribbon on the inside. :) I did go back and forth many, many times about using Pearls or Rhinestones. I'm glad I stuck with the pearls. :)
