Good Monday Morning.  Today's card is for the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

Today's idea is to use Crepe Paper on your card/project for flowers and embellishments.
This crepe paper is by Melissa Frances and comes in off white, and pastel pink, blue and mint green.

I also used the matching pearls from Melissa Frances.

The image is a Slapstick cling set from Penny Black.  I stamped on a Sizzix die cut, Frame Back, Ornate #3.
Colored with Copic Markers.  I stamped twice and cut out the bird and the umbrella and popped them up.
The Crepe Paper flower is cut from a Sizzix die, Flower Layers, I cute two, four piece sets and layered them on a brad.  I then scrunched up all the layers and added a pearl to the center over the brad with a glue dot.  I cut strips of the crepe paper and threaded it through a hole I made at the top and bottom of the
die cut with the image.  The square doily and pearls were added to finish.

Hope you have a chance to make some fun embellishments from crepe paper.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great Monday.  Until later...................
