On Your Special Day

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I hope you are all well, I can't believe it is Friday already and we are over half way through January too.  It has been one of those weeks this week, you know what I mean, where you plan to get jobs done by Friday and somehow come Friday you haven't managed to get them done, yep that is me which means I will be working my socks off this weekend to get them finished by Sunday Evening.

The first of two posts for today, I made this as an experiment to see if I could do a CAS Wedding Card but as you can see it is far from CAS.  I so applaud you ladies that can make some gorgeous CAS cards but it is something that doesn't come easy to me.


Recipe

1. 6 x 6 white pearlescent square card
2. The first layer is a piece of card from my stash which I have punched along the top with Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch 
3. I cut out the decorated circle using Core'dinations card with Spellbinder Stately Circles
4. I added the topper which was in my stash and inked the edges with pale pink ink
5. To finish off I have added a sentiment and pearl gems to the corners.


Thank you for visiting today
Hugs xxxxx

A lovely card Linda. The image is gorgeous and love the colours. I know what you mean about CAS cards. I find them so much more difficult than cramming on loads of embellishments.
