At Joan's Gardens Challenge #10

The Challenge this week is to create a card that uses products sold at Joan's Gardens. Use an embossing folder, make a black and white card, and use pearls, lace and flowers.

For this card, I used Starform Stickers, edge trims in white and black; I embossed the black and the white photo paper matting with the Vintage Lace Embossing folder that came with my E-Bosser machine that I got from Joan's Gardens.  The Black edging,  embossed with Bubbles embossing folder and  spritzed with white shimmer mist, is created with Spellbinders Edgeabilitis E8-006 and accented with pearls.  In the wings of the edging I have placed Schiffli satin embroidered lace edging that closely mimics the embossed paper below it.  A little punched glitter paper flower tops a satin bow that holds two doves on a shimmer paper heart. (EK Success 81339). This card has a lot of dimension created with the open lacework, the embossing and the edge trim. 
This is an anniversary greeting card for friends renewing their vows this year.
Almost all these products, plus the wonderful E-Bosser machine, are available at Joans Gardens. AND if you can't find what you are looking for at Joan's--just e-mail her and she will find it!  She has hundreds of sources for the best products for crafting on the market.
