With Love

It's my cousin's wedding anniversary in a couple of weeks and I usually find myself either making or buying a card 3 days before when it takes the card  about a week to make the journey across the Atlantic. So here I am, 14 days ahead of time and this is uncharted territory for me. What do I do now? Pop it in the mail immediately, sit on it for 10 days and then spring into action...or blog about it and then take my own sweet time mailing it? We'll see hat happens tomorrow, but for now let me show you what I made:

Im using papers from  Studio 12 PickNix Collection 1 by Polka Doodles. 

It's a simple card. My cousin isn't into fussy designs. I'm using some cream lace and pink ribbon. That huge bloom is by Prima. 

The sentiment is from WMS Fancy Phrases, stamped in Memento Rose Bud.  For cutting and layering I used Spellbinders Labels 4 and Labels 18. I did some inking with TH's Tattered Rose, Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. And finally 3 pink pearls to seal the deal.

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from the same WMS set, using the same ink. 

For this card, the sketch is from Mojo Monnday #284 and ideas and inspirations came from The Shabby Tea Room # 157 "Oh So Pretty In Pink"; Simon Says Stamp "Chic to be Shabby" and Artistic Inspiration #32 "Flowers".

Thanks for dropping in for a look-see. I'll catch up with you guys tomorrow. Have a great Monday y'all!

  14. Asha...your card is so pretty; so feminine and shabby chic. I love the pink and white color palette. The polka dots are wonderful! Your machine stitching really is a nice touch as is the bit of green in the narrow matting that you've used. It's a very nice design! Thanks for sharing your card with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
