Winter Berries with Pearls

Hi.

Edited to add that this was a winner at
Penny Black Saturday Challenge


I have another Christmas card to share today.


Another UFO with the Winter Berries stamped on vellum.

I loved the image but didn't know what to do with it.

I decided one of those frames left from cutting stitched rectangles would
do well to anchor it down.

is asking for LACE and/or PEARLS
I colored some pearls with a red Sharpie to add a few berries.
(A good way to cover a few smears.)

Hello Bonnie,
Your card looks as delicate as the lace of the Penny Black challenge. It's moving, how hard you came in on the challenge. I love the pearly shine of some berries. Great project and so amazing inspiration, Bonnie. Thank you :-))

This is such a delicate image, Bonnie. I love the added pearls. I have so many of them that I should use up but sometimes they're difficult to mail.

I had to catch my breath on this one! It is one of the most beautiful Christmas cards for sure. The pearls just added an elegance to an already lovely image.

Susan said...

The vellum gives the branch a beautiful ethereal look. I love the way you framed it and added the random scattering of pearls (perfectly placed! - I'd have been agonizing over where to place each one!).

Love this stamp on the vellum and with the red pearls. Saw this stamp on one of your cards last year and got it and used it a lot especially for Dec. birthdays. Like what you did with it on this card...created a simple and serene feeling.
