Monday Montage

Hello and welcome to another fun Monday Montage Blog Hop! Have you ever made a card and just really liked how it turned out? Every now and again I love the way some cards come together and I am pleased with the finished product--this was one of those cards. One reason why it may have really worked for me was the use of Cordinations card stock. That stuff is yummy and with a quick swipe of a sanding block it takes on a great look.
Another touch I love on this card is the blending of Ivory Naturals card stock and Very Vanilla card stock. It's quite subtle but makes for a rich appearance. There is lots of texture on this card from an embossing folder to crinkled banners to sandy touches of glitter. I think the most subtle detail is the paper piercing and the tiny pearl accents. I have to say it again "it's just one of those that really appealed to me." I hope you have been inspired and enjoy the hop.
