To a Special Couple…

I imagine the title gives it away that this is for a very good friend and her husband.  It’s Stacey’s anniversary and as usual I’m late getting the card to her. She likes purples, so I decided to go with that color scheme.  Lili of the Valley is one of my favorite stamp company’s, and I love using their images for special cards..



Their challenge this week is a sketch  and I’’m following it and adding a little extra bling to it. You will notice several dies on the card this week.  All of them are by Cheery Lynn Designs  The ones on the inside are new and I just had to try them.  I didn’t know how in the world that corner die would work, since it was so large, but I think it’s beautiful.  I have another beauty coming up soon that is just as beautiful.  (These were all a gift to me by a very special lady.)

Stacey also loves lace and bling, so hopefully there is enough bling.  I added the charm, after painting it with fingernail polish.

My personal message went in this top frame.  Isn’t that die cut beautiful?

But this corner frame is what I think is just gorgeous.  When I first saw it, I just couldn’t imagine how it would work on a card, that is, until I saw an example of it.  I added pearls to jazz it up (as if it needed it).

I’m entering this in the following challenges:

We LOVE our card Debbie! It is so beautiful and made with love! I am always late with cards, so I never mind when I receive them late. I am like 6 months not a week & 1/2. Plus I gave Aaron a Hallmark which is so wrong, but I did not have it in me this year to make him one. I love the purple and all the beautiful embellishments! The lace, flowers, and bling are gorgeous! The perfect amount. The die-cuts are all stunning! Thank You Debbie! It is on our mantle!
