Celebrate Today

I had a couple custom orders for bridal shower cards last week. I made the first one and delivered it...WITHOUT taking a photo. Dang it, I hate it when I do that! It was a really cute one too :) Luckily I have some similar supplies so I will probably make another that is based on the first one - and this time take a picture.
This started out to be the 2nd custom order, but I don't know. I think I will make another and take both in to let her choose. I like how this one turned out, but I'm not so sure it's what she wanted, know what I mean?
As you can see, I once again used that yummy beaded and sequins bridal lace. Even without the layered butterfly part, this card looked so elegant. I might actually do another one with just the lace and sentiment and experiment with different colors.

Anyway, back to this card. I cut the butterfly with one of my Spellbinders Butterflies dies and the labels are Spellbinders as well - Curved Rectangles and Labels Seventeen. The cardstock is all by Paper Accents and I used Zip Dry adhesive by Beacon Adhesives. The sentiment is by Papertrey Ink - "Mega Mixed Messages" and I heat embossed it with Ranger "Sea Foam" embossing powder. I glittered up the butterfly with some el cheapo (not really the name ;) ) glitter from Hobby Lobby. Seriously, for a nice sized container, it was only $1.47 for the regular price! It was great for this card because it reflects the blue, purple and pink of the labels.
In other news, we're all white and frosty again. sigh.
The nice weather brought the robins back and when it started to snow, they all congregated angrily in the trees and cried their birdy little eyes out. I could empathize with them. Now they're all fluffed up and pouting. Again, I empathize.
Thanks for taking a peek :)


  1. Very pretty. Love the lace

  2. The bridal lace is so gorgeous! I've gotta get my hands on some of that!

  3. I like how the sparkles in the butterfly reflect the colors of the graduated shapes it is on! Pretty, Amy~
