Good afternoon...I finally have a card done!! I have been working on this one little by little.
I currently have an upper respiratory infection and muscle strain in my shoulder.  I can't get comfortable in bed and finally went to the walk in clinic this morning.  I was sure I had pneumonia with the pain. Not fun and now I am waiting for the clinic to fax in my prescriptions. Geez, 2 hours later and the store still has not received it.

My card was a request from a friend at work who wants a wedding card for her sister.  She wanted pinks and greens which aren't colors I normally work with, however, I found these beautiful papers at Michaels.
The sketch I followed is from this weeks Midnight Madness challenge.

Here's the sketch:
Here's my take on the sketch:
I've used 3 different dp although there isn't much contrast between the 2 triangular pieces.  The left triangle and the square piece are from the Jubilee collectin by K&Co. and I'm afraid I don't know who the rt triangular piece is by but it is pretty-greens and pinks.  I've separated the 2 triangles with this gorgeous ivory lace from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I love this store!! The roses and pearl stick pin are also from them.  My green fronds were made with a MS punch.  My digi rose is from Shelly's Images and is printed on ivory textured cardstock.  My sentiment stamp is from Inkadinkadoo and I embossed it in seafoam white.  It matches the white accents, which are raised rubber, on the dp perfectly.

A Spoon Full of Sugar:  good luck, best wishes- I think a wedding card qualifies

Thanks for visiting!
