Congratulations

Happy 4th of July, everyone! Thank you to our troops and the family who made it possible for us to enjoy the freedom we have.

This weekend, I've been spending my time on the computer a lot and playing in my craft room a lot. I do have good excuse. It's so darn hot outside. :)

Anyway, one of my favorite site to browse is Pinterest. Best source for inspirations. If you're not familiar with it, it's kind of like virtual pin board. See something you like on any website, you can pin it to your board. Like clipping a pic from a magazine and pin it to your cork board. You can check out my board HERE.

My favorite things to pin are travel pictures and pretty things, including wedding related stuff, just because they're so feminine and girlie. And... the wedding cake. Yumm....ie and inspiring. With that, I was inspired to do a congratulations card.


I love, love the dimension on this card. The whole decoration kind of come up accidentally. At first, I was going to use lace ribbon, but it didn't seem quite right. Then, I was looking at my printed digital paper that has this aqua flowers and paisleys  with a bit of red that match the cake.

Luckily, I was crazy enough to fussy cut, intricate image. I stick with straight border for the cake as well, so it has a bit more contemporary feeling, which I like. This card will definitely go to someone special. Here's a close - up of the 3D effect.


Yep, you guess it, I am entering this card for Paper Crafts 2011 Gallery Idol. Last entry. :)

Hope you enjoy your visit here and thank you for stopping by. Have a fun and safe "Independence Day!"
