My goal is ambitious: 24 cards in the next 18 days. And those who know me know that I rarely slap a card together ... I put a lot of thought and time into the cards for those who mean a lot to me. And the issue of domestic violence moves me to care, as 17 years ago, I was there too.
For this card, I first made a bracelet of pearls and lavendar Swarovski crystals, handknotted on silk thread. My mom taught me this technique when she visited last weekend!
I used the bracelet to embellish this card. It is removable so that the recipient can wear it to remind her that she is thought of, with love.
Do you like this concept of a card that's also a gift?
Meanwhile, if you'll follow and comment, at the end of the month I will pick one lucky winner for whom I'll make her choice of a beaded bracelet or necklace, in the length and colors of her choosing.
... nice blog candy if you're a girly-girl like my granddaughter, Charlotte (below). Isn't she just the cutest little thing?
