Paper Roses and Pearl Pins

Picture 236
Last week I said I was going to try and use paper roses and pins on a card a bit like I had seen on other blogs ….

This is what I came up with, warts and all, it’s very, very plain and simple.  Other cards I have seen have used lace and fancy borders etc. but I thought I had better try to walk before I ran with the idea.

As I have used cream and gold card I painted the silver of the pin with a permanent green marker pen so it blended in more. I sort of think the pin should be pushed in a little further in, but it’s not too bad for a first attempt.

Fab card. I know what you mean about using flowers on your card making. I've never done it but you've made a great job for your first attempt. The fact that you've kept it simple really works.

A gorgeous card. The flowers and pins are beautiful as is the sentiment. Told you they wouldn't bite you, lol

This is very pretty, I prefer simple, some of the cards I see online are just too fussy for me

A really lovely card. I have bought flowers and pins too but haven't had the courage to put them together on a card yet. Thanks for the inspiration x
