Eiffel Tower for the Blushing Bride

Today's cards have oodles of details on them.  These were made for the shop, A Beautiful Touch, in Westmont, New Jersey.  I made two versions, both basically the same except for the card base color. The first features a chocolate card base:


The next card was created on a cocoa card base, so just a wee bit lighter than the one above.  You can see the gold embossing of Leafy Vine / Hero Arts better here:


Loads of details if you look closely:  pearls, Liquid Pearls, doily, fleur de lis, Eiffel Tower, and a Colleen bow made with my FAVORITE seam binding in Mottle Brown, from the Zipper Stop.


So glad you dropped by today!  Thanks!

Your Liquid Pearls look as good as the real pearls on your card! Pretty with the gold embossed background on rosy pink. Love how you used the doily to highlight the main image. Beautiful, Colleen!
