WMSC #103 & TSTR #119

Hello sweet friends! I hope you are having a wonderful Friday. I know I'm sure glad the weekend is just about here. I'm really looking forward to a nice, relaxing weekend :)

Today I wanted to share with you a card I created for this week's Waltzing Mouse Stamp Challenge and The Shabby Tea Room Challenge. This is my first time taking part in the Waltzing Mouse Stamp Challenge. I have been a huge fan of their stamps for some time now, so I'm so happy to finally get a chance to play along. Here is the sketch for this week's challenge...
And here is the SUPER GORGEOUS inspiration photo for The Shabby Tea Room's Challenge...
From the moment I saw this breath taking photo, I knew I wanted to try to re-create this GORGEOUS bouquet. I was just so super intimidated by its beauty and thought, there is no way I could create anything that would do this photo justice. So at first I actually decided to sit this one out. It wasn't until I saw the WMSC sketch that I knew exactly what I wanted to do and decided why not take a chance and see how it turns out.

As usual, I was working against the clock. I didn't have time to go shopping for some gorgeous pearl and bling centers so I just did my best with the supplies I had on hand. I actually kind of like how it turned out. My favorite is the cream colored pearl flower rosette. I tried to re-create one of the pearl centers in the photo above which I thought came out pretty close. I had to cut apart some gorgeous Karla's pearl trim, but I really like the end result. The pearl sprays are also from Karla's etsy and I thought they were perfect for this card and added the finishing touch to my little bouquet.

It is really late here is the beautiful Hawaiian islands, so I must say good night. I will be back to add in the details of my card and hopefully more photos. Until then, good night sweet friends and have a wonderful weekend!
