Pearls of Wisdom

How charming did this turn out? I really struggled to get the right ribbon. If the tails were to long, you couldnt see the pearls so I made it so the tails went up. First I had a solid double sided satin pink ribbon, but it covered everything up. This is a special order from Stephanie, for her daughters wedding. Her wedding colors are Pink and Brown. Hope she likes it. Have you heard of Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels? I bought a bottle of Iridescent Gold, Pearl, Pink Bubblegum. I gave this little bird a spritz of the Pearl and it gives it hint of sparkle, not like glitter but more like a shimmer. I think I'll be buying more colors!
