So Very Loved

09/27/2017 Update: Top Three Award Winner at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #230.
One of my dearly loved nieces celebrates her 37th birthday soon so this card is for her.
The various panels of cardstock and patterned paper were adhered to a vanilla card base. The ribbon was added along with two punched banners. The sentiment panel was die cut, stamped, decorated with flowers and Nuvo drops and popped up onto the card for dimension. The inside was stamped with the word, "loved" along with some tiny hearts and decorated with a strip of coordinating paper. I left space for a personal message.

My card is being submitted to:

  3. What beautiful reminds me of when I would go and visit my grandmother, very similar wall paper in her spare bedroom which I stayed in when each of us would go there different weekends for our holiday shopping day in Buffalo. Beautiful card. Thanks for sharing with AHSC and bringing back some long time memories.
