"Woodland Blush" Vintaj Design Challenge!!

I am really excited about this one!! I a m not exactly sure what happened with this design, but it turned out exactly how I wanted it to!! Now some of you are thinking that they most likely always turn out like that, but honestly, this is the first time that the picture in my head was exactly what came out in my hands! Some have come pretty close, but this one is my best I think :)
 I was really inspired by the theme and everything just happened! From my heart to my hands :) The wonderful variety of Vintaj findings always helps the imagination flourish! I had a couple of the newest pieces that have come out recently and I was truly Eager to include them in this piece!
The sweet little leaves that are a part of the dangles are perfect! Love the soft curved edges :) The branch really adds that woodsy feel and the pale pink flowers are the ideal blushing element to this design!
I took the sweet little flowers all the way around the necklace! I did not want to wimp out on this design, I wanted it to shine with detail and texture! I truly hope you feel that I have accomplished that!
This is the piece I pray and hope you will go vote for! It would be an honour and a privilege to be chosen as the winner! I believe the voting opens at noon eastern time, so I know that as I write this it has not started yet. I am including the link to the blog and will update to the actual post as soon as I see it is live!
Thanks for stopping in and visiting with me, I value each and every comment you leave for me, so don't hesitate to leave one now, I always read them :)


Thanks for your continued support!

Dreamy! This necklace brings a nice feeling inside. Beautiful! (And supposedly I don't like pink.) :-)

It's beautiful. Love that branch connector at the center!

Absolutely beautiful! Love how all the elements work together, wonderful texture. The branch element is such a great contrast to the more formal looking Victorian style components--like a Victorian cottage in the woods! Love the dark brass with the soft pinks. You nailed it! The focal is just gorgeous too.

So pretty! I wish I had the talents with wrapping Vintaj filigree but I can't seem to make the leap from 2D to 3D. My brain must be broken!
