Fleur De Lis Birthday

Hello everyone! Another week has gone by - and quickly at that. Hope you all had some great weather like we did. Spent most of Saturday in the yard raking 26 bags of leaves and that just covers the front lawn! I was itching to get into my craft room but I thought I should take advantage of the weather and help the hubby so that he didn't have to do the leaves on his own. Together it took us most of the day - on his own he wouldn't have finished.

I was able to find play time today and first up is a birthday card using the Nestabilites Pendant set - Fleur De Lis.

I've had this set for about 3 months and have yet to use it. I marked a card from Becka Feeken when these were first released to give a try someday. I thought it would make a great layout for today's post. As things typically happen, we find things in parts and they somehow come together. I found this DP by Three Bugs in a Rug that had a similar pattern, and I thought it would make a good match with this set. Couldn't believe I was making a card without coloring but at least I used my Nesties! This really was very simple, it's just a cut of the pendant three different ways and with different paper to piece together. A silky organza ribbon bow, a lucious pearl button and a quick tag finish it all off. The tag was speckled using Coffee Shop Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. The sentiment is from Verve's Birthday Surprise set.

Have a great week and thanks for looking!

OMG, a post from Lisa and she beat me to it. Cath, I love this card. The colors are beautiful and what you did with the pendant is great. I really didn't think that I would ever use those in a LO when they released but this makes me see how beautiful they are.
