Time to celebrate

Hello friends! I made this card "just for fun" after seeing the photo from Kelly Rasmussen on the Hero Arts blog for Fresh Inspirational Friday. Here's the photo, courtesy of Martha Stewart Weddings.


And here's my card.


I wish you could see the pearlized embossing. I used the scalloped label and flower from Hero Arts new Sweet Threads Labels set, and the sentiment is from Find Joy. The pretty pink ribbon was given to me by my sweet friend Kiara.


Speaking of celebrations, I'll be taking a short blogging break as my hubby and I celebrate our 32nd anniversary with a much needed vacation and getaway.

I'll see you all when I return. Have a wonderful week....I know I will!

Stamps: All Hero Arts
Cardstock: Stampin Up
Ink: Versamark
Other: Judi Kins pastel embossing powder, dimensional adhesive, pearls, ribbon from Kiara
