Nestabling™, Swirls and Pearls

Good morning and welcome to the Want2Scrap™ blog! Today, I have a pretty Spring card filled with Nestabling™, Swirls and Pearls to share with you.
Here is the card that I designed using Nestabling™ Lacey Ovals Moss Pearl, (love this color of green! *wink*) 72 Count - White Pearls - Self Adhesive , Swirls, Finesse - Brown Rhinestone - 2 Pack - Self Adhesive and Baby - White - Pearls -100 Count. To start I cut/embossed a piece of Simply Smooth Ivory cardstock from Discount Cardstock using the Grand Calbiur™ and S4-314 Lacey Ovals #5 die template from Spellbinders™. Then I added the Nestabling™ Lacey Ovals Moss Pearl from Want2Scrap™. Look how beautifully and perfectly the Nestabling™ fits on the lacey edges of the die cut. Next I cut/embossed the image of the birds using the Grand Calibur™ and S4-110 Classic Ovals Large #4 die template from Spellbinders™. The image of the birds is from Crafty Secrets Birds & Botanicals Images & Journal Notes.Here is a close up of the image and Nestabling™.
Next I wanted to add a Swirls, Finesse - Brown Rhinestone - 2 Pack - Self Adhesive but I knew it was going to be a little big for the space I had left on my card so I cut the swirl into two pieces. By cutting the swirl it does tow things--allows me to use it in the space I have and I can create a different look for the swirls depending on the placement. Here is a picture with the placement of the swirl. I also added 72 Count - White Pearls - Self Adhesive and Baby - White - Pearls -100 Count to the tip of each swirl. I love this look! It give the appearance the swirl and pearls are all one piece. I added a flower for and embellishment at the bottom. To create the flower I cut Simply Smooth Ivory cardstock, using the Grand Calibur™ and S5-050 Rose Creations die templates. Then I inked the edges with Spun Sugar Distress Ink and added a 72 Count - White Pearls - Self Adhesive to the center and then added Flower Soft around the pearl. For the leaves I used S4-328 Foliage and Herbal Garden Medium Prismatic cardstock. I inked the leaves with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. For the sentiment I used word blocks from Crafty Secrets Altered Fairies Creative Scraps.For a finishing touch I added Diamond Stickles to the image, flower and leaves.
