"Best Wishes" to the Happy Couple!



Yesterday I found a beautiful card on someone else's blog...can't quite remember how I got there but her name is Jean Martin, the gal who designed the card. She said it got published in a magazine and I could see why it was chosen...its gorgeous! Soooo...I thought I'd try something similar. And here is what I came up with. I doubt if you can see it but I used that nice iridescent Cryogen paper and all the stamps I used are from Cindy Echtinaw's "Lacey Circles" set. Oh except there is a flower one in the very center of the circle design which I colored and covered partially with the paper flower and button. I'm curious to see what Cindy thinks of this one!
The lavender paper and the ribbon are from my stash; everything else can be purchased at Cindy's http://www.stampingscrapping.com/ ! I looked at my list of challenges that I sometimes enter cards in and believe it ot not this card doesn't work for anything! Oh well, this one was just fun to make. And I'm pleased with how it turned out. It is going to be a wedding card (I have to finish the wording and design on the inside yet). So, "Thank You", Jean Martin!
And thanks in advance to anyone leaving some kind comments!
*******************************
Well, its now a few days later and, yes, I HAD to "fix" the uneven edge on the card! The photo made it look worse than it was but I still didn't like it. So I took it all aprt on that side and trimmed and trimmed and reglued and rephotographed. So here's the corrected version:




And since I finished the inside of the card as well I'll include a picture of that too!
