A Little Over The Top??

Hey there folks! Hope your Tuesday has been a good one. So have you ever started adding bling to a project and just kept going, and going, and going??? LOL I think I went a little crazy here. The polka dots were made with gold embossing powder. I totally did not want to do that. I had something totally different in mind, like flourishes, so after I embossed them I was like, wait, I meant to emboss flourishes. LOL have you ever done that, intended on one thing and kinda forgot what you were doing and ended up with something else? Please tell me I am not the only one! LOL. Anywho, I also did not intend to use two birds. I cut them out in different sizes to see which one i would like best for the card. I also did not intend to make a 5x7 card but again, i dont know what happened. I guess this just WANTED to be made?!?!? Anyway I have no idea what I will use it for 50th anniversary? dont know of any of those coming up anytime soon. Wedding? Surely this is too much for a baby shower? Let me know if I missed an occasion this card could be used for. Thanks! and thanks for stopping by here today!

WOW!! I think this is absolutely beautiful and not too much at ALL! I think the pearls tend to soften it and that ribbon is perfect!
