 Blue - It is time for another challenge at Creative Card Crew and this time, we want to see a focus on words. The challenge is to use a sentiment as your main focus point.

For my card, I bought a 6x6 paper pack at Michael's that was in their $1 bins. As soon as I seen this package, the card started forming in my head. I used to see a lot of blue delft dishes and things, but it has been a while since I have seen any and they have a certain charm to them.

This was a simple card to make and my husband has already asked for it to give to his mother for her birthday.
 I fussy cut the sentiment piece and the shape behind it. I love how they layered together. The tiny white pearls were made with my Viva Decor pearl pen which you can get from our sponsor Simon Says Stamp here. I love these pens; as I can control the size of the pearl. I also used the blue pearl pen on the blue pearls. Viva Decor pearl pens come in lots of colors. The hard part is narrowing it down.
The lace was from my stash. The flower was another cut out that was in the pack. I cut just the flower part the second time to add some layers. 
A very simple, yet elegant card.

I hope that you liked my card and that you will check out all the goodies at Simon Says Stamp and join in our challenge at Creative Card Crew.
