Hi.  I'm back for a quick post.  With my son's wedding quickly approaching there are some finishing details we need to take of which leaves no time for card making.  But once the wedding is done I will be back, I promise.

Tonight's card is one I made a few weeks ago for our Manager of AP, she took on another role within the company. No stamping involved only the sentiment.  I was inspired by a card my friend Carla made a couple of months ago.

Paper is Basic Grey.  Dies are Spellbinders - scallop borders two,  Creative Expressions (Sue Wilson) - Striplet - lattice heart, Simon Says - stitched banners, Memory Box - lavish branch.
Finished with flowers from Prima and Wild Orchid crafts, pearls and ribbon.  Sentiment is from PTI.

Sorry for the short post, and remember I will be back in a couple of weeks for sure. Thanks for stopping by today.

Sigh... How DO you come up with these stunning creations? Your flower arrangements are always so gorgeous, and the die combos! -- WOW! The soft, subtle, beautiful BG paper is the perfect setting for your exquisite flowers. Wedding preparations can really take up a lot of your time. It's going to be wonderful, but you'll breathe a sigh of relief when it's done.

Oh, Pauline, I totally agree with Leslie that your cards and ideas for them are stunning! I love your floral arrangement and especially love how this one has some of the colors fro your BG...which is so beautifully soft. Your co-worker will absolutely love this, and I know you will be glad (to some degree) to have more time after your son's wedding. What a wonderful day that will be. But it will be so nice to see more of your coloring, which is are amazing at! Hugs, sweet friend, and try to have a good weekend!

So stunning. The placement of flowers and colours are a masterpiece. Love the Basic Grey paper with the combination dies. You are so creative. Also love the placement of pearls and the stitch banner. Thanks for taking the time to showcase this beautiful card before the wedding. Enjoy your weekend. Hugs
