Let's Ink it Up and The Cutie Pie Challenges
The challenge this week at The Cutie Pie Challenge is to use our die cuts and/or punches and at Let's Ink it Up, we are to use our Favorite Embellishment. Of course I used my nesties to make this telescoping card and my favorite embellishment is pearls. Either pearl pen (if there is a bunch) or real pearls as I used in this case to highlight the beautiful flowers on the Stampin' up teacup.
I cased this telescoping card idea from this blogpost but I changed mine up to use my own colors and stamps and to add a tea bag as a gift for the recipient. I usually don't use ribbon and brads all that much, so I can't say honestly they are among my favorite embellishments. But I love and use pearls and gems to embellish all the time.
