Simply Adorned Necklace

Here's a quick post before I go to my fun Thursday with the girls. Talk about quick! I stamped the little insert for this necklace in less than five minutes. I copied the necklace pictured on the handmade holiday flyer by Stampin' Up. The stamp set is called Charming. SU is having a bundle promo right now, and this one came with the stamps, the charm, and the chain. I started with a scrap (and I do mean scrap) of Very Vanilla CS then stamped the sentiment background with More Mustard. I colored the flower stamp stems with an Old Olive Stampin Write Marker, and the flowers themselves with a Dusty Durango SWM. All it took was a couple of huffs, and viola, it was done. Then next step was to cut my image into a 1 x 1 1/4 rectangle. I then added two little pearls to the flowers, and slipped it inside the beveled charm. Beautiful! I finished it off with a crystal bauble, and a bit of ribbon. I plan on making more inserts, and giving this as a Christmas gift. It already comes in a great gift box. So that's it!

Thank you for dropping by, and have a fabulous Thursday!
