So, do you have something fabulous planned for the weekend?!?
Actually, after last weekend, I'm ready to just work on projects around home. My house is still relatively clean but I am seriously behind on cards so I think I'm going to take some time to remedy that.
So, on to today's card...
I started with a half sheet trimmed of Lavendar Lace. I was a little surprised I still had any left, but when you consider the size of my stash...okay, not so strange after all. I layered the front of the card with two bands of background paper from a Pink Paislee collection called Vintage Vogue and tied a bit of soft pink satin ribbon over the seam then layered it on a quarter sheet of Elegant Eggplant.
The three little flower panels are all done with scraps of pinks and lavender, a couple of punches and a SU! embossing folder (Square Lattice). I punched all the flowers, adhered them to small rectangles of Neenah Baronial Ivory and Elegant Eggplant and then ran them through the embossing folder to get that pressed flower look. A clear flower button in the middle of each one adds a little somethin' and the little "celebrate" tag finishes it all off. The latter was stamped in Melon Mambo on ivory, punched with a 1-1/8 inch circle punch and then layered on a 1-1/4 inch circle of Melon Mambo. I actually adhered the sentiment to the back of one of the pressed flower pieces before I adhered them all to the card.
Thanks for dropping by! Have a great weekend!
