Now, I will...

be the first to admit that this particular card is somewhat "over the top".  Yep, it has it all, bling, glitter, glamourous fashion girl image, patterned paper, fussy cutting and a bow.  Wow!  It is like a fancy-pants card on steroids!  But, it is for my sister in law who has a birthday on Thursday and is throwing a wedding for her only daughter on Saturday.  That definitely  is a person who deserves an over the top, pull out all stops, bling it up, down and all around type of card.  I used Penny Black Fashionably Wrapped and cut out the holly piece and inserted a wrapped package from Penny Black Let it Snow . Then I used a sentiment from Penny Black To You which is one of my favorite sentiments to use.  I also tried paper piecing after seeing Kathy Racoosin's card here.  Kathy did an AMAZING job....I am just starting to try this paper piecing technique and I totally have new respect for all you ladies who do it so well!  Yikes-not so easy!


                                                                         
Thank you for stopping by today!  I always appreciate the visits.


Be well,
Sheila
