Pearly Three Ferns Thank You Card

A friend gave me a bottle of Perfect Pearls 'Perfect Pearl' Mist as a gift and also gave me the recycled kraft A6 card blank.  I've used them to make a thank you card to give to her.  I inked the Three Ferns stamp with two colours of ink, stamped the Weathered background over the top and sponged the edges.  I then spritzed the panel with the Perfect Pearl Mist.  Oooh, it's so lovely and shimmery, I love it!  There are other colours in the range of Perfect Pearls Mists and now I've had a go I'm planning to buy the gold one which I think will be fab for Christmas cards.

Next I made a foofy flower by scrunching up three punched Rich Razzleberry Fancy Flower shapes which I spritzed before adding the brad.  After diecutting the doily border I also gave that a pearly spritz but I left the Pear Pizzazz strip plain.  I used the Modern Label punch for the Thank You sentiment from the Curly Cute set

I then decorated the envelope and the inside of the card.  The small flowers on the sentiment are punched shapes from the SU! Itty Bitty Punches pack.  I added small clear gems to the flower centres.  I wasn't sure about these kraft card blanks, I felt they were a bit dark.  Now I've tried one I've decided I really like them!
