This is beautiful Sabrina. The colors and bling are wonderful, and I love the way you framed the label with the Persian Accents. I've never thought of using those two dies together. Its very nice!

Dawn said...

a beauty, Sabrina..love the dies

Queen Mary said...

Gee whiz Sabrina, you make an incredible card! Clearly I need Parisian motifs - and you MADE the stick pin? Do you have a source for the little bits that can go on the end of the pin so nobody gets stuck? I'd love to find those! Then I'd be more inclined to try to make my own! Thanks for sharing this amazing piece!
