All Occasion Card


I've been practicing adding extra layers to cards. I just love the look of layers of luscious goodness on a card. Lace and frills and flowers. I've tried making CAS (clean and simple) cards and I just can't do it. They look so 'nekkid' to me and I want to add more clothing and accessories to them. LOL I'm happy with this latest card that I've made. Happy enough that I will put it up for sale in my Etsy shop. Here's what it took to make the card; 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 white cardstock. 4 x 5 1/4 blue cardstock. 3 1/4 x 3 3/4 white cardstock. 2 1/4 x 3 1/2 blue cardstock 2 x 3 1/4 white cardstock K & Co Susan Winget Birdcage Wild Orchid Crafts 30mm Wild Roses (PM-00124) Wild Orchid Crafts 10mm Pink Tone Roses Set A (EX-00014) White Organza Ribbon from stash Pink Satin Ribbon from stash White Gathered Lace from stash White Half back Pearls Dollar Store Green Patterned Paper for Leaves Martha Stewart Scallop Punch Swiss Dot Embossing Folder Cuttlebug As always your comments are welcomed and appreciated. I am entering this card in the Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge #89 Ribbons and Lace. Wild Orchid Challenge I'm also entering this card in the Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge #73 Anything Vintage Goes Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge
