My creation today is one I made for Shelley. She works at our local post office and is such a sweet lady who knows me very well from coming in with packages to mail all the time. hee hee We have chatted quite a bit and she is super sweet. I wanted to brighten her day with a fun little card so I grabbed the favorite new set of mine called Glamour Girls. Whohoo! Told you I had a few of these up my sleeves lately. HA! She is stamped onto classic white cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink.
Now this is WAY over kill for me on layers and design but hey its good to step out there once in awhile. ;0) I have die cut her with Spellbinders classic ovals that I layered onto our perfectly Pierced Victorian Ovals die.
Then a few layers of cardstock from the fun paper Carta Bella True Friends pack. My solid cardstock is from two of our Color Made Easy Collections Candy Pink and Pistachio. My ribbon has three layers a white lace trim, a green butterfly lace trim and our Color Made Easy Candy Pink Aster tied into a bow with some jute twine and a soft pink button. Fun paper doily for the side and lots of flourished pearls for bling. Oh yea.... I can't wait till she opens this card, as I love how it turned out over filled and all! HA!
Now hop on over to the ever so talented Miss Cindy.
Thanks for hopping along with us today! Have a wonderful day!
