I'M BACK!! :) With a new Card!!

Hi everyone!!! I've missed you all and of course blogging! It's been a tough year to say the least but even tougher this summer. Things are still crazy in my life but schedules are now back to normal and I can get back to my love of card making and stamping! I hope everyone had a safe and fun summer. I wanted to let those who supported me when I quit smoking that I am still going strong and feeling amazing :) I don't feel free from all the cravings yet but going to the gym definitely helps. :))

I made this card for a friend of mine who had a wedding to go to. It was someone from her workplace that I made the Bat Mitzvah invites for. The link for that post is HERE. The picture does not do this card any justice because of the size and materials that were used. Check the list below for more details.
The card is 6x6 and I used Prima Say It In Crystals for an added elegant flare for both the outside and the inside. As you can see the stem of the flower is the same scroll as the inside of the card. I was going for something fresh and elegant and my friends loved it when the saw I personalized it :) I have a couple more wedding cards that I came up with that I will post this week. Hope you all have a good day :)

Card Recipe:
Stamps: None
Paper: 140 Vellum Smooth (strathmore), SU WW.
Ink: None, Computer Generated Sentiment.
Embellishments: Antique Brads, Prima Say it in Crystals, Bazzill Flowers, Making Memories Acetate patterned paper, Glue Dots, SU Tab Punch.
