Trims Special Wishes

Today is about trims. And maybe not just trims, but borders, and ribbon, and lace, and just plain old adding texture. For this card, I grabbed two sets of trim I had from My Mind’s Eye and their Portobello Road line. The tissue paper is stitched to the trim. The glittered ribbon is another trim, and the blue, shaped twine is yet another. I think they work so well together. It fun to pile them on and be girly.

Tomorrow is the last day of the series. Can you believe it? Have you been inspired? If you have, share your project by leaving a link in the comments! I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing the ones you have already shared-thanks! thanks for stopping by!

I love trim - this might be my favorite of the 12 things so far! I especially love vintage lace! This card is just beautiful! I love the texture - even the paper adds texture. Thanks so much for the inspiration!
