i love this colour combo!!! lol! this is again cardstock from the mother's day gift from my teacher.  cardmaking is simplified when you have such beautiful patterns that require little more than an embellishment.  here i have added a chipboard accent "dream" and layered ribbons from a thrift store and michaels.  the button was a gift from another teacher at school!  everyone knows i have very limited monies so they share!  i have finally started to decorate the inside of the cards with bits of leftover cardstock that may not make it as a usable scrap for another project but it just finishes this card along with a rub-on sentiment, beautifully.  this card is for a teacher that just got engaged and she keeps the cards i give her and displays them on her mantle!!!  i need to make her another card as she is leaving for another school.  it's that time of year!


  1. That is so pretty! And, yes, I love the color combination too! Your teacher friend has good taste -- she keeps your cards because they're pretty, made with love and care, and she definitely can't buy them anywhere.

  2. I agree some papers are so beautiful they do not need much to create a gorgeous project.
    I love this one too.

  3. I LOVE the idea of adding parts of the design/papers on the inside of the card. It adds a great finishing touch!!!
