Serve the Lord

Wednesday, May 1, 2013

Hi there! My friend, Lori, gave me some beautiful napkins a few weeks ago, and I used one of them to make this card. It's sealed with Sparkle Mod Podge. It was a lot easier than I thought, and I love the look.
The blue pearls on the left side were made with a Pearl Pen.

The color is more accurate in this pic, and the big jewel is much more sparkly in real life. :) See all that sparkle on the napkin!

A lot is going on on the front of the card, so I left the inside simple.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

I didn't know there was such a thing as Sparkle Mod Podge, but I'll be keeping my eye out for that! This is beautiful with the colors you chose, and the perfectly matched ribbon. Must be really something to see in real life with all the sparkle!
