Your card is so pretty. You always seem to know what embellishments to use and where to put them. As for my favorite embellishment it would have to be, I know this is going to sound boring but, it would be RIBBON!!!!! I think it adds a final touch. You can put it anywhere on the card and it brings warmth. I don't think its boring at all. It's just wonderful!

Sue said...

I am not very creative when it comes to embellishments...I tend to keep things simple, but I do love ribbons and blingy type thingies LOL!

My favorite embellishment is ribbon. I'm part of a card ministry and we have to keep things as flat as possible to mail so usually just a small ribbon.

Amy said...

Thanks for the chance.

I love anything small and cute-buttons, stickers, pearls, crystals, flowers, etc. My favorite at the moment is crystals.

By the way love your card.

Laraine R said...

Too much to chose from. But if I have to it would be a tie between brads and glitter. Love your card!! Great sketch!! Thanks for all the inspiration!!

Abby said...

My favorite embellishments are some little silver dots I picked up--they came as a continuous line, but I cut them up to use individually. A short string of them make great bubbles for fish.
