Congratulations card #1

Wednesday August 10, 2016
 
Well since we are on vacation at Catch the bug I have had some ... very little .. but some time to make some cards.  A co-worker wanted some of my Congratulations /wedding cards. She ordered some last year and loved them and got raves from people who saw them.. She only wanted 3 but I was pulling papers and said OH I love these... OH I LOVE these... Oh and Oh an so on so ends up I will make 4 when I am done.. or will I find more papers????. I will post separate cards over the next few days as I make them.. I have a feeling she will take all 4 of them.. if not I know I can sell it elsewhere or use it for someone..
This is the first one. I used scrap of designer paper, the black strip has been put through an embossing folder. The leaves are Stampin Up and the flower is my favorite of all times from My Favorite things. The sentiment is from Simon Says. I used my mini stamper thingy and loved that I could go over the sentiment 3 times and perfect line up (the little dots in the sentiment are in the stamp. it's just the way it's made)..  I am going to love that tool. What do you think? Did I chose some awesome colors?
