It is ZVA goodness time at CPS

Can I be excited about the sponsor for this week at Card Positioning Systems blog? Maybe you have never heard of Zva Creative but be watching all week long as the CPS blog posts the creations from the DT using these amazing products. Another word for this goodness is "bling"! I just had to create two cards using the Zva Creative products so here they are.
This card is made up of Core'dinations cardstock and some great, Little Yellow Bicycle products accented with some amazing Zva Creative self adhesive pearl flourishes.
When someone first invented "self adhesive" rhinestones and pearls, I was instantly in love. The next step came with these amazing "strings" of self adhesive goodness.
One thing to note is that you don't have to use these flourishes and designs just as they are, they are so easy to snip here and there to customize your use. For this card, I used two flourishes with white self adhesive pearls and then I snipped off a few pearls from another piece to create the little "c" shape of pearls to make a finished end on each flourish.
This goodness also comes in colors and I really wanted to show off these neat green sets of flourishes.
I accented the card with a green Glimmer Mist and I sniped off individual pearls to accent my stamped image.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Love your cool way to finish the've solved a problem for me, as I also love to cut up the flourishes, but have struggled to finish the ends!!
