Aqua Lace with Yellow and White

Sweet and fresh pastels.  Flowers, lace, and twine.  Very pretty in real life.  Two nice touches are the dots of yellow pearl pen and the yellow that shows through the top row of lace dots. 

Note: the gray is background, not part of the card.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) stamper's select white, aqua mist, and the leaf print from PTI lemon tart (yellow) pattern pack.
  • Twine is The Twinery buttercream.  I used a 1/4" hole punch to notch the sides of the card, to keep the twine in place.
  • Dies are PTI wonderful words: hello, Avery Elle icon fill in the blank, and Memory Box charlotte border (retired).
  • Bottom corners are notched with 1/4" Corner Chomper
  • The pearl dots in the flower centers are Viva Decor pearl pen, yellow (it's the pastel yellow 202, not sunny yellow).
