There's nothing more simple yet so elegant than a gorgeous strand of pearls! This week at Pals Paper Arts, we're hosting a Clean and Simple "Elements of Style" challenge (PPA58) and pearls are our featured fashion element! My creation for this week's challenge is definitely "clean and simple" (CAS) with a touch of vintage elegance! Minimal supplies were used to make this card and, best of all, it was quick and easy to make! I adhered three strips of vintage-style papers to my base that, when grouped together, create a contemporary feel. Tiny pearls were added to the pink strip on the right to highlight the designs of the patterned paper. The clean lines of the modern-style sentiment really "pop out" against the added pearls and stamped images both above and below the sentiment, resulting in a contrasting yet cohesive focal point. The results? An unusual mix that works! Fresh, fun, simple, and elegant!
What a you waiting for? Now it's your turn to play at PPA! Get out your supplies and get busy! Need more inspiration?
