You never know what your card will inspire. I made this card for my daughter. I left it on the bedside table as a welcome for her when she came home between semesters. She got engaged shortly after that and she wants to use the colors in this card for her wedding colors! Her wedding is in 2010, so we have so much time to plan. In the mean time, I made little sample cards using the same materials for her to give out to her attendants so they can keep the colors in mind and keep their eyes open for anything "wedding" that matches her color scheme. The scalloped card was purchased (unfolded) at a scrapbook store. I used Stampin' Up's Print Pattern, juiced up with Chocolate Chip ink over Gold-inked French Script. The brown leafy pattern is an unmarked designer paper and the horizontal turquoise with gold paper is actually a piece from a magazine ad! The crocheted flower was part of a bundle of items I got from an auction site. Gold cording is also Stampin' Up.

What a wonderful story to go with this card! I love the colors, especially the magazine strip. The crocheted flower is just the right finishing touch.
Such a good mommy . . . I love doing little extras for my daughter, too (if only I could get her to stamp). The crocheted flower really pulls the look together. I'm interested in seeing what you come up with for the wedding. I'm working on an invitation design for my nephew . . . I need ideas! Hugs, M
