Le Fleurs ~ Adventures in Bib Necklaces

I have something huge in the works that wraps up this weekend.  I will be able to share more of that with you soon, but until then here is a little romantic piece to hopefully inspire you.

I created it for a "Ribbons & Fleurs Bib Necklace Swap" for my Marie Antoinette Mail Art group.  I really got in to the fabrics and making all different kinds of flowers.  A silk flower I just adored didn't make it in because the color wasn't just right.  I loved it so much that I made about 25 of them in a bunch of varieties to sell to my scrapbooking group.  I customized the center of one to use on my movie card.

Here are more close ups of the necklace I sent to my gal, Kim.  She requested muted colors, so I had a little free reign which was fun and stressful at the same time.  I have to admit I obsessed a bit over whether she would like it.  Turns out, she did.  :)  Hooray!!

Love and {{Hugs}}
