Can I tell you a secret?  This card started out with a landscape/horizontal format.  It did not look quite right. 

I was gonna leave it.  I really was.  Cuz it wasn't all that bad.  But, ya' know how things nag at you . . . and ya' can't sleep at night cuz ya' know zacly what needs done to fix it?

  Yeaaaaah.  I did not wanna be lying in bed at 2 am, cursing the fact that I did not fix it . . .

So, I butchered the original.  Pulled off the flowers, cut away the entire border piece with the tab, lace & all.  And. whacked off the right end of it.  Made a new base card, re-stamped Bursting Blooms, and faster than you can say, "Bob's yer uncle!" I had the rest of it all re-done.

Notice anything unusual? 

Golly gee, have I ever been known to put so many Pearls or Twinkles on one project???!!!  I KNOW!!! (best Monica voice)

OK. So, here's the story: I had a couple of nearly used up packages with random sizes of pearls left, so I decided to gob them onto the flower centers.  Well, mebbe this is not "gobs" by other peep's standards, but by mine, it is a considerably excessive use of Pearls. 

Considerably.

You are proud of me, aren't ya'?
