A card for my sister-in-law

Good morning everybody.  I hope the weather is as nice with you as it is here.  Today we have bright sunshine and it is very warm.  Really lovely after all the torrential rain that we had.  Today I have made a card for my sister-in-law Mary.  Unfortunately the picture does not show the lovely pearls down each side of the black and white paper.  I printed this paper off a Debbie Moore cd. and  put it on centura pearl card. The oval in the centre is Floral Ovals by Spellbinders and the baby's breath is from Wild Orchid as are the pearls.  The die cut on the outside of the card is a  Marianne die.  Now with each card that I make I put a little card stand cut from some centura pearl cardstock with a die by Joy crafts.  Since this card is half an inch in depth I put it in an envelobox made from centura pearl cardstock using the envelobox board from Crafters Companion  and I emboss a gold rose in the left hand corner.  The overall card measures 6" x 6".  I hope you all have a lovely day and thank you so much for taking a look    .
