Monday Mini

Happy Monday everyone! I had a great time Blog Hopping with Papertrey Saturday night (and a bit on Sunday morning :) I hope you had a chance to take part.

Today I have another installment of Monday Mini. I love making mini cards, so I thought I'd make a habit of it! Today's card uses Damask Designs again.

The flower/flourish/spidery looking thing (my husband's term) is a combination of images from First Fruits. I stamped them with Palette Charcoal and SU!'s Going Gray, cut them out and layered them. The strip of Soft Stone was embossed using the Cuttlebug Herringbone embossing folder. The pearl embellishment is a brad from K & Co. (I think). I cut the pokey parts off and used a glue dot to attach :) It is a little hard to see, but I stamped one of the circles from Simply Stationary behind the flourish. It shows up better on a different angle.

The finished card size is 3-1/4" square - mini! I hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by, I was really motivated to create this weekend, so I have lots more to share in the coming days.

Have a great one!
