Well, I'm on a role. I have a very dear friend that is retiring from teaching at the end of the school year and the girls are going to help her celebrate, this Friday. I wanted to make an over the top card and I'm hoping that this one fits the bill. It is made with a retired set that I love, Best Blossoms. The scan does not do justice to all the bling. The line down the "I" in Big, are pink crystals, there is glitter outlining all the pick flowers. The message has pop up dots behind it. The loopy brads and the flower ribbon brad is from Oriental Trading. I love embellishments almost as much as ribbon !! LOL !! The ribbon is from Starlit Studios. I also put glitter around the message using the sticky tape. This is a trick that I cased from a beautiful birthday card that I received from a dear friend HB. Her work is amazing and you can view her gallery on SCS.
Now my only problem is, I don't have an envelope to fit it. This card is 5 3/4 x 5 1/2 and I never bought the large square envelopes. I may have to make one, but that's a project for tomorrow.
