Keep Calm and Drink Wine

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is a card I made to beat the stress - just right, isn't it? Except that wine is terribly expensive here. The clear sentiment stamp was bought at The Range in the UK (cannot recall the name) while the oval frame with the vine and grapes is from Hero. I thought I must use these Keep Calm series before they become passe.
I have coloured in with my Prisma pencils and the flourishes have been sponged with Milled Lavender while the green sponge has been done with Old Paper - it kind of looks too green in the picture. The flower is handmade and the paper came from Terry a few years ago. I had to add the pearls to cover up some faux pas. I quite like this card but the pink paper??? 


I will enter this card in:

Happy Easter to those celebrate it,

Monica

Wowsers! Monica, this is stunning! I like that pink paper just fine and all the rest of it too. Love the placement on the pearls (even if you were covering up something). Everything about it is so beautiful!! Outstanding job!

What a great image and your pearls and flowers are wonderful! Wine does help with stress relief if you stay with one glass - LOL! Love your card Monica and happy Easter to you too! Hugz!
